What is the NAMI Family Support Group Program?

Dec 11, 2019

NAMI Family Support Groups, offered by NAMI Affiliates in communities across the country, are free, confidential and safe groups of families helping other families who live with mental health challenges. In NAMI Family Support Groups, families join a caring group of individuals helping one another by utilizing their collective lived experiences and learned wisdom. Family members can achieve a renewed sense of hope for their loved one living with mental health challenges.

NAMI Berks County PA offers its NAMI Family Support Group on the  second Wednesday of each month from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m at Calvary  United Church of Christ, 640 Centre Avenue, Reading, PA 19601.   Lighted parking lot access is off Oley Street with rear entrance into building by NAMI sign.

Participant Perspectives

“Before coming to the support group, we had never spoken about mental illness to neighbors, friends and often not even to our relatives.”

“NAMI Family Support Group really works and it makes the group experience even better.” “I just attended my first NAMI Family Support Group and the facilitators and the group experience was just the kind of support I was seeking at this time.”
