Become a NAMI Family Support Group Facilitator!
A NAMI Family Support Group facilitator is a trained NAMI leader who leads a 90-minute, monthly Family Support Group. They play an important role in ensuring that all participants feel welcomed and supported. NAMI facilitators are uniquely qualified to lead support groups because they are going through their own loved one’s recovery process. They can empathize with and encourage those who are just beginning the journey to a renewed life. A NAMI facilitator ensures that the group shares responsibility for maintaining guidelines, sustains clear participant boundaries, clarifies goals, and reinforces communication skills that encourage group participation.
Who Should Attend: Family members and friends of individuals living with mental illness. Participants should have attended the Family Support Group meetings and agree to adhere to the NAMI Family Support Group model.
