NAMI signature programs are at the heart of our organization. Through programs we connect to each other and ourselves. All programs are free and peer-led. Please join us!

NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, 12-session educational program for family, significant others and friends of people living with mental illness. Research shows that the program significantly improves the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to an individual living with a mental health condition. NAMI Family-to-Family is taught by NAMI-trained family members who have been there, and includes presentations, discussion and interactive exercises. PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE FOR F-2-F.
NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults living with mental illness. You will gain insight from hearing challenges and successes of others, and be able to share what has been helpful in your own recovery. A structured model helps facilitate discussion so all participants have the opportunity to speak up. Initially, we will run the group on a monthly basis. DROP INS ARE WELCOME!
