Family Support Groups

Looking for support? Come and make important connections to others who:

  • understand the challenges you face and the opportunities ahead
  • feel the same way you do
  • have had the same experiences
  • will help you learn new coping skills
  • will share their successes and strategies with you

Groups are led by a trained volunteer facilitator who is a family member. If you interested in becoming a volunteer support group facilitator, please visit Leader Trainings in the education section.

Through affiliates around the state, NAMI NH offers supports groups to family members and parents who have a loved one with mental illness. If you have a child/adolescent with a serious emotional disorder, attend a Parent Support Group. Find a support group near you using the links below. In addition to the Family Support Groups listed here, NAMI NH also offers on-line support groups.

NOTE: Please contact the group facilitator listed to make sure no schedule changes have been made. If you are unable to reach the facilitator, please call or email the NAMI NH contact.

Contact information listed below is intended for families and individuals so that they may connect with Support Group leaders regarding the group. Contact information is not intended for solicitation of any kind.
