Connection Peer Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for any adult (18+) who has experienced symptoms of a mental health condition. It is a safe space for support, community, and discussing personal struggles living with mental illness.

We are an affiliate of NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) which is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation's leading voice on mental health. Today, NAMI is an alliance of more than 600 local Affiliates (Tallahassee included!) and 49 State Organizations that raises awareness and provides support and education not previously available to those in need.

In this position, expect to direct conversation with your co-facilitators to keep on track with the group's schedule, guidelines, and Principles of Support. You will be required to go to at least three (3) Connection meetings before qualifying for the weekend training session.

*Facilitators will receive a $25 stipend for each group they facilitate and an additional $25 each group they act as "Lead Facilitator" for.
