Across the country, thousands of trained NAMI volunteers bring peer-led programs to a wide variety of community settings, from churches to schools to NAMI Illinoiss. With the unique understanding of people with lived experience, these programs and support groups provide outstanding free education, skills training and support.
Mental Health Education
NAMI Illinois offers a variety of classes for individuals, families, significant others, and friends of people with mental health conditions. These classes teach the basics of mental health conditions, increase coping skills, and empower participants to become advocates for themselves or loved ones.
NAMI’s support groups follow a structured model to ensure you and others in the group have an opportunity to be heard and to be helped. All NAMI Illinois support groups are free and confidential and require no registration.
