Connections Support Group

Connections Support Group is a support group for individuals experiencing a mental health condition. Individuals do not need a formal diagnosis to attend. These sessions takes place in an intimate, confidential setting to allow peers to share with each other their positives and negatives. This type of group lets you know that you are not alone and it is not your fault. 

By sharing your experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you can gain hope and feel a sense of connection. The group encourages empathy, productive discussion and a sense of community. You'll benefit from other's experiences, discover your inner strength and empower yourself by sharing your own experiences in a non-judgmental space.

 

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group will help you:

  • Aim for better coping skills

  • Find strength in sharing experiences

  • Not judge anyone's pain

  • Forgive ourselves and reject guilt

  • Embrace humor as healthy

  • Accept that we cannot solve every problem

  • Understand that mental health conditions are no one's fault and can be traumatic experiences
