Support Groups
NAMI of Lorain County sponsors several types of support groups designed both for caregivers and those living with mental illness.  Such groups, led by trained Facilitators, provide confidential opportunities to share personal stories, relate to others with similar experiences, learn about community resources, and offer hope and encouragement.
Call the NAMI Office at 440-204-4391 for further information on particular support groups described below:

Connection Group
The NAMI Connection Recovery Support Groups are a casual and relaxed approach to sharing the challenges and successes of coping with mental illness. Each group meets bi-weekly for 90 minutes. This is for adults with mental illness, regardless of diagnosis. The group is led by trained individuals who are in recovery themselves. They understand your daily challenges and can offer you encouragement and support.
