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.

The 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.

PLEASE NOTE—Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, NAMI Portage-Wood Counties has moved 3 of our support groups to Zoom meetings.  

Zoom Peer Support Group meetings are planned—please call Kay at 715-254-1864 for schedule information.

Zoom Family Support Group meetings are planned, with two options available. Call Kathy Hartman at 715-254-5452 for information.
