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

NAMI Virginia and Virginia Family Network are partnering to provide this 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.

This meeting is held on Zoom. To access please use this link

Please plan to connect to the meeting at least 5 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!

Zoom FAQ

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.
