NAMI FaithNet Combined Peer and Family Support Groups
A NAMI Maine FaithNet combined support group offers a confidential interfaith support group that includes a spiritual dimension for individuals and for family members affected by mental health challenges. Being a member of a particular faith tradition is not a requirement for participation--the group is open to family members and individuals who are interested in exploring the role of faith and spirituality in health and healing. The hallmark of a NAMI support group is utilizing the collective knowledge and experience of the other participants. For a complete list of all types of NAMI Maine support groups visit our Support Group Listing page.
