Online Support Groups

NAMI Family Support Group for Parents of Children 17 and Under- NEW!

This is a free, peer led support for parents of children living with mental health challenges. Our NAMI Family Support Groups offer a confidential space to share and gain sincere uncritical acceptance from others with similar experiences. For more information about the program please click here.

When: 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

This meeting is held on Zoom. Please email mwalsh@namivirginia.org to request the link.

Please plan to connect to the meeting at least 10-15 minutes prior to the start time to address any technical difficulties. In an effort to keep groups productive and effective for all participants, we may experience a need to divide the group in to separate meetings or recommend attendance during a different time slot. We appreciate your patience as we grow and learn together with our ultimate goal in sight – providing you with support and resources to promote wellness and recovery!

The same Group Guidelines and Principles of Support that apply to in-person meetings will be used to guide NAMI Online Support Groups, and each NAMI Online Support Group will be led by two NAMI-trained facilitators who are parents of children with mental health challenges. These groups are offered free of charge, as are all NAMI Programs.

If you are in a crisis situation, please call 911, the National Suicide Lifeline 800-273-TALK (8255), Text NAMI to 741-741, or visit our crisis resource page. 

Coming soon- Peer support group for young adults (18-30) living with mental health conditions.
