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.
