NAMI Chicago offers support groups virtually. We have “Peer Support Groups” for people with mental health symptoms and conditions to connect with one another, and “Family and Friends Support Groups” for people to connect with others who are supporting someone they love with a mental health condition. All support groups are free, safe and confidential places to talk things through with others who understand your experience, and they are led by people who have had similar experiences too.

All group participants must register for groups in advance. After registering, group participants will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link and call-in number to access the group. With questions about groups, contact our Helpline at 833-626-4244.

To provide the best support possible, we ask that all attendees read and adhere to the below guidelines before joining a virtual support group.
