Parent Support Groups

While in-person meetings of NAMI NH support groups are currently suspended through June 30, 2021, several groups have moved to online meetings. Please contact the facilitator of your local group to learn more.

If you or someone you know is struggling emotionally, you are not alone. Help will continue to be available 24/7.  Click here to connect.

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 facilitator who is a parent. If you interested in becoming a 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. Find a support group near you using the links below. If there is no parent support group near you, please contact the Information and Resource line to learn about 1:1 family support program.

There is also a closed Facebook group available for parents and caregivers – learn how to join.

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.
