NAMI Indiana affiliates provide two types of support groups:

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for any adult who has experienced symptoms of a mental health condition. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by trained leaders who've been there.

NAMI Family Support Group is a peer-led support group for any adult with a loved one who has experienced symptoms of a mental health condition. Gain insight from the challenges and successes of others facing similar experiences.

All NAMI support groups are offered at no cost.

Participants must be at least 18 yrs. of age. No referral is necessary.

If you would like to start a support group near you, contact info@namiindiana.org for details.
