Give Back - Make an Impact - Change Lives

Volunteer to become a Connection Support Group Facilitator!

Are you living with and managing a mental health condition?
Are you interested in learning skills to help support others?

If so, you may be the perfect person to be a NAMI Connection Support Group Facilitator!

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Groups are a peer-based, mutual support group program for any adult living with a mental illness. Connection groups are led by two trained facilitators who are in recovery themselves and are at a point where they want to "give back to others" by offering encouragement and support through their own experiences. Successful facilitators are good listeners with an empathetic ear.

Groups are confidential, led by trained peer facilitators, and free to attend.
The 90 minute weekly meetings, currently being held on Zoom, provide a supportive place for people to share their experiences, learn from others and know that they are not alone.
While support groups are casual, there is some meeting structure to give all participants the opportunity to confront and discuss challenges, share resources and/or wellness strategies, and connect with one another.

Volunteers need to commit to facilitating a group for at least one year.

Training is required and provided for this opportunity.

If you want to improve your own health while helping others, this is for you.

"At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished... it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back." - Denzel Washington
