Combined Peer and Family Support Groups
A NAMI Maine Combined Peer and Family Support Group is a blended support
family members and peers meet together either for the entire meeting, or for
part of the meeting before breaking out into separate groups. 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.
