Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NAMI New Orleans support groups will be held via Zoom until further notice.

Do you ever feel alone in the world?  Coping with mental illness can be one of the toughest experiences one can endure.  NAMI New Orleans offers free, peer-led support groups that are open to adults who:

Live with mental illness–NAMI Connection Recovery Support Groups

  • Wednesdays, 2:00-3:30 p.m. (starting May 27th)

Have a loved one living with mental illness–NAMI Family Support Groups

  • Every 1st and 3rd Thursday, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
  • Every 2nd and 4th Saturday, 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
  • Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday, 12:00-1:30 p.m.

Have lost a loved one to suicide–NOLA Survivors of Suicide Loss

  • Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday, 6:30-8:00 p.m.

In a support group, no one is alone.  Everyone has the opportunity to share their experiences with others in similar situations.  You may learn of new resources and gain knowledge and confidence in dealing with your struggles.

We do not allow observers in any of our support groups.

Register for NAMI Connection and NAMI Family Support Groups through our calendar. Register for NOLA Survivors of Suicide Loss by contacting the facilitators. You will receive the Zoom/call-in information via email.
