  • 20 people are interested

Open to those located in Colorado.

Volunteer to become a NAMI Family Support Group Facilitator!

NAMI Family Support Groups are free, peer-led support groups for any adult with a loved one who has experienced symptoms of a mental health condition. Attendees gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by two trained facilitators who’ve been there.

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

NAMI training is required and provided for this opportunity. Before the training, you must attend 2 groups to gain an understanding of how the group works. Please note, we do not allow observers, so you must only attend the group if you can participate as a peer. The NAMI Boulder County Family Support Group meets every Wednesday at 7:00 pm MT VIRTUALLY!

Contact us at info@namibouldercounty.org if you are interested.
