Family Support Groups

Due to corona virus risk, most NAMI in-person groups and classes will be offered virtually. Please call the contact number for your local NAMI affiliate to find out what options are currently being offered in your area.

Family Support Groups are an important resource for families who have a loved one with a mental illness.  Knowing that others have had the same experience is a relief to families who have seldom spoken about mental illness to neighbors, friends, or often, even relatives.  Learning that other have been able to work out some common issues can inspire hope.

All NAMI Colorado Family Support groups are Free, drop-in support groups, meaning you just show up.  No registration needed!

Through the NAMI Family Support Groups, you will find:

  • A network of friends who care and understand
  • Ideas that help you take care of yourself and your family
  • A chance to share your experience and learn from others who have been there
