NAMI Support Groups

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

If you or your loved one develops a mental health condition, it’s important to know that you’re not alone. One in five people will experience a mental illness this year, and one in 25 Americans lives with a serious mental health condition. Mental health professionals have effective treatments for these conditions, yet in any given year, 60 percent of people with a mental illness don’t get mental health care.

You do not need to face the challenges of mental illness alone. NAMI of PA Philadelphia County is here to offer support and resources that promote recovery and hope.

NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model to ensure you and others in the group have an opportunity to be heard and to get what you need. By sharing your experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you gain hope and develop relationships. The group encourages empathy, productive discussion and a sense of community.
