New Family Support Group Starting in 2018
Southwest Mississippi & Surrounding Areas:
NAMI 4Rivers Mississippi is starting a family support group starting January 11, 2018. This group will meet once a month on the second Thursday of the month.
NAMI Family Support Group is a peer-led support group for family members, caregivers and loved ones of individuals living with mental illness.
NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model, ensuring everyone has an opportunity to be heard and to get what they need.
· Free of cost to participants
· Designed for adult loved ones (18+) of individuals living with mental illness
· Led by family members of individuals living with mental illness
· No specific medical therapy or medication is endorsed or recommended
By sharing your experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you gain hope and develop supportive relationships. This group allows your voice to be heard, and provides an opportunity for your personal needs to be met. It encourages empathy, productive discussion and a sense of community. You’ll benefit through other’s experiences, discover your inner strength and learn now to identify local resources and how to use them.
If you know of friends or family members who would benefit from this type of support group, please inform them of the meeting.
