NAMI Family Support Groups
NAMI Family Support Group is a peer-led support group for family members, caregivers and loved ones of individuals living with mental illness. Groups generally meet on a monthly basis but may meet weekly. The hallmark of a NAMI support group is leveraging the collective knowledge and experience of the other participants. We are currently gauging the interest in bringing this NAMI signature program to Boulder/Broomfield Counties.
If interested in helping with this program (leaders of such a group would require NAMI-training), contact us at 303-443-4591 or email our programs coordinator, Elizabeth Stahl, at

We are excited to announce that several short NAMI Family Support Group outreach videos have been created to help you learn about the NAMI signature support groups program. These videos are available by clicking on the links below.
