Family Support Group
 
The NAMI family support group is for those who need support dealing with a loved one dealing with mental illness.  Too often, mental illness is an isolating experience, accompanied by profound anxiety. When your family member is diagnosed with a mental illness such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or any of several illnesses, there is a dramatic change in the relational dynamics between family members.
Talking with someone to share coping strategies and insights, as well as problems and concerns, can be an important link to the pathway to recovery.  NAMI family support groups aim to provide a place that offers respect, understanding, encouragement, and hope.
