 NAMI Connections Now Every Monday & NEW!

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults living with mental illness.  You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by NAMI trained facilitators who have been there!  We offer a safe and confidential place to share and glean group wisdom.
