Connect with a Recovery Support Group run by and for people with a lived experience of mental illness.
You are not alone. There are others whose life experiences are similar to yours.
Peer Support Groups are free. They’re a safe, non-judgmental place to share your journey and learn from others who’ve been there. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by NAMI-trained facilitators who’ve been there.
Peer Support Group will help you:
- See the individual first, not the illness
- Recognize that mental illnesses are medical illnesses that may have environmental triggers
- Understand that mental illnesses are traumatic events
- Not judge anyone’s pain
- Forgive ourselves and reject guilt
- Embrace humor as healthy
- Accept that we cannot solve every problem
- Work for a better future in a realistic way
- We aim for better coping skills and find strength in sharing experiences.
- We reject stigma, don’t tolerate discrimination and will – never give up hope!
Weekly Peer Support Group meetings are held each:
Saturday, 10:00 am—11:30 am , at the
NAMI Brown County Resource Center
932 Cherry Street, Green Bay
