Basics Support Groups

The NAMI Support Group model operates differently than other, more traditional “share-and-care” groups. The NAMI Support Group model offers a set of key structures and group processes for facilitators to use in common support group scenarios. These structures come with clear guidelines to follow; used together, they encourage full group participation in support group meetings. The structures of the  model feels comfortable for both seasoned and less-experienced facilitators because they guide the support group along in every situation.

The NAMI Support Group model is not just for Basics and Family-to-Family Education course graduates, nor is it just for family members. It is a model that can be used by any NAMI support group. Please take time to review the list of groups below to find out more.


NAMI Basics Support Groups are designed for parents and care givers of children and adolescents, 19 and under, who are still in school.
