NAMI Carroll County

Family Support Group

What is the family support group?

NAMI Family Support Group is a peer-led support group for family members, caregivers and loved ones of individuals living with mental illness. Gain insight from the challenges and successes of others facing similar circumstances.

These informal support group meetings are always free of charge and are led by a NAMI trained and certified leader. All groups are confidential—you can share as much or as little personal information as you wish.

NAMI Carroll County support groups are for individuals 18 years or older. The information and insight provided by group leaders and participants do not represent therapeutic recommendations and are not meant to be a substitute for the advice provided by a mental health provider or other qualified healthcare professional.

Joining a support group can help you to feel better in any number of ways, such as:

Knowing that others are going through something similar
Learning tips on how to handle day-to-day challenges
Meeting new friends or connecting to others who understand you
Learning how to talk about things that bother you or how to ask for help
