NAMI support groups are peer-led and offer participants an opportunity to share their experiences and gain support from other attendees.
Groups provide a safe space to address the challenges presented by mental health conditions regardless of the specific diagnosis. The groups are free of charge and are confidential.
Because the support groups are each led by teams of two peers, each meeting emphasizes our overall messages of hope and community. Participants gain insight from the challenges and successes of others facing similar experiences.
Please note : Observers are not allowed in NAMI SF support group as the information that is shared in groups is confidential. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Family Support Group is for family members/caregivers of individuals living with mental illness.
Connection is a recovery support group for adults living with mental illness.
