Find Help, Find Hope!

Peer Support Groups

NAMI Greater Houston’s Connections Support Groups are for individuals living with a mental illness; living in recovery, just diagnosed with a mental illness or experiencing the symptoms of a mental illness.

In our free, 90-minute, peer-led and confidential groups, we:

  • See the individual first, not the illness
  • Recognize that mental illnesses are medical illnesses that may have environmental triggers
  • Understand that mental illnesses are traumatic events
  • Aim for better coping skills
  • Find strength in sharing experiences
  • Reject stigma and not tolerate discrimination
  • Not judge anyone’s pain
  • Forgive ourselves and reject guilt
  • Embrace humor as healthy
  • Accept that we cannot solve every problem
  • Work for a better future in a realistic way

All Connections Support Groups are facilitated by trained facilitators who have lived experiences with a mental illness.

When you attend one of our Connections Support Groups, you will find that you are not alone. People who have been through, or are going through similar circumstances can do more than sympathize with you – they can relate to what you are going through. Our support group meetings are a great place to find practical tips and resources to help guide you in your recovery.

Our support groups provide a safe, caring and understanding environment that can help participants regain lives once lost.

In addition, our Connections Support Groups will often encourage participants to seek out professional treatment for the first time or persuade others to take a more active role in their existing treatment plan. Lastly, making connections and witnessing the success of others provides a roadmap of hope for those impacted by mental illness.

In NAMI Support Groups, we encourage members to never give up hope! We’ve been there and we can help.

Connections Support Group meetings are free, confidential and open to individuals affected by mental illness
