Privacy & Confidentiality
This is a space of confidentiality. The conversations shared within these groups must remain within these groups.
We also want to remind everyone that these are groups only for people 18 and older who are (individuals OR family/friends/partners of an individual) living with a mental health condition.
Group Guidelines and Principles of Support are used to guide NAMI Support Groups, and each NAM Support Group will be led by two NAMI-trained facilitators who are either family members or individuals in recovery themselves. These groups are offered free of charge, as are all NAMI Programs.
