Support Groups

work

Connections groups are free weekly recovery meetings for people living with mental illness in which they are able to learn from each other's experience, share coping strategies, and other encouragement and understanding while on the road to recovery. Each group meets for 90 minutes, follows a flexible agenda, and is led by a team of trained individuals who are in recovery themselves. There is no cost to attend these meetings.

Latest Connections schedule is on NAMI Nebraska website.  Click here for details. 

Family Support Groups are free monthly meetings for family and friends of people with a mental illness. Participants can talk frankly about their challenges and help one another through their learned wisdom. These meetings are facilitated by trained NAMI members who also have a close family member or loved one with a mental illness.

Schedule is subject to change. If it is your first time attending a meeting or if you haven't attended in a while, we recommend you call the NAMI Nebraska office at 402-345-8101 during business hours to confirm the schedule hasn't changed.
