As a precautionary measure aimed at slowing the impact of COVID-19 in our communities, all NAMI NH Support Groups are suspended through April 4, 2020. For more information on scheduling changes, postponements, and cancelations, visit the NAMI NH’s COVID-19 information page.
Our Online Facebook Support Group Pages are still active at this time. There is also a Live Online Parent/Caregiver Support Group that meets remotely on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 10am. Contact the group facilitator for more information on how to participate.
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.
