BASICS Parent Support Group – Now Online
This Online NAMI Basics Support Group is for parents and caregivers of young people, under 23 years of age, who are experiencing a mental illness or symptoms. The meetings are led by a trained NAMI Basics team with lived experience raising a child with a mental health condition. They know what you’re going through because they’ve been there too. Family members join a caring group of individuals helping one another by utilizing their collective life experiences and learned wisdom. Family members can achieve a renewed sense of understanding and hope for their loved one living with mental illness.
Sessions are held the 1st Tuesday of the month from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. using Zoom. Each meeting is limited to 12 people, first come, first served. It is suggested to 10 minutes prior to the start of the session to test equipment.
