There is no need to register—just come when you feel like you need someone to talk to. The groups are led by trained individuals who are in recovery themselves. They understand your daily challenges and can offer you encouragement and support. All groups are confidential—you can share as much or as little personal information as you wish.
NAMI Connection groups should add to and not replace the treatment plan determined by you and your mental health care provider.
