The NAMI Support Group model serves both “people living with” and “people living in support.” NAMI operates differently than other, more traditional “share-and-care” groups. The NAMI Support Group model offers a set of key structures and group processes for facilitators to use in common support group scenarios. These structures come with clear guidelines to follow; used together, they encourage full group participation in support group meetings. The structures of the new model feel comfortable for both seasoned and less-experienced facilitators because they guide the support group along in every situation.
NAMI WC offers training for support group facilitators and we offer regular support groups for adults and young adults.
