Combined Peer and Family Support Groups





A NAMI Maine Combined Peer and Family Support Group is a blended support group where 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.


What You Should Expect

  • Designed for people (18 and over) who have mental health concerns and family members who have a loved one living with a mental illness.
  • Facilitated by a trained team of family members and/or people living with a mental illness who are stable in their own recovery.
  • An environment of sincere, uncritical acceptance – we "get it”.
