Hello to all of our NAMI attendees and members. Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we will not be having our Connection Group or Family Group meetings for the time being. We will keep you updated as to when we will resume our meetings.
In the meantime, if you are looking for more information about the Coronavirus, please take a look at this link https://www.coronavirus.gov/.
If you are in crisis, please contact the Georgia Crisis and Access Line (GCAL) at 1-800-715-4225. There is help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for those in crisis.
We are an affiliate chapter of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. We want to help individuals and families develop the skills that will enable them to cope with the demands of living with a mental illness. We provide free support groups and educational programs for those living with a mental illness and their family members.
NAMI Connection Group
This group is for people living with mental illnesses. Offer a structured group process led by trained facilitators designed to encourage, support, and empower. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by trained leaders who have been there.
NAMI Family Support Group
Is a peer-led support group for any adult with a loved one who has a mental illness. Gain insight from the challenges and successes of others facing similar experiences.
Both groups are:
Free of cost to participants
Designed for adults (18+) with mental health conditions
Connection group is led by trained facilitators who have mental illnesses
Family Support group is led by trained facilitators that are also familky members of those with mental illnesses

On the last Thursday of the month our support groups come together to hear a speaker, who shares information about a current mental health topic.
