Join this facilitated, confidential support group for adult family members and caregivers concerned about and/or caring for a person with mental illness. Leaders are trained family members with lived experience of a loved one’s struggles with mental illness. Weather cancellations are listed on Channel 2. This group meets the 4th Thursday of each month. The group is not held on Thanksgiving but you’re welcome to attend a group on another night at one of our other locations, including online the following week. To attend online, you need to pre-register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number, and date(s) you wish to attend an online group.
There is no fee to attend a Family Support Group. We encourage participants to join NAMI Buffalo & Erie County or make a donation, if able. No one is denied membership due to financial hardship. Membership includes local, state, and national NAMI.
This group is only appropriate for a person who has a diagnosis if they are a caregiver of a loved one who has mental illness. Referrals to other services are available for those with a diagnosis seeking support. For any questions, email us at email@example.com or call the office at 716-226-6264.
