NAMI Portage-Wood Counties Support Groups
Monthly Support Groups
Are you living with a mental illness and suffering in silence? Do you have a family member, loved one or friend who lives with a mental illness?
NAMI Portage-Wood Counties offers free monthly Support Groups to help you cope and connect with others who will understand and be a listening ear.
Peer Support Groups for individuals living with mental illness and Family Support Groups for family members or friends who have a loved one dealing with mental illness.
Our support groups are open to the public and lead by trained facilitators who also deal with mental illness or have a loved one who suffers from this brain disease.
Our groups will gradually be returning in person, we will keep you up to date here and on Facebook.
As of July, we have two groups meeting virtually and two moving to in-person. See below for details.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these changing times.
