Family Support Groups

NAMI San Francisco Support groups provide knowledge and understanding along with an opportunity for group attendees to share experiences in a confidential setting.  Groups are led by either trained professionals or NAMI members with extensive personal experience coping with mental illnesses and its impact on families.

All of our support groups are no cost and drop-in. You are welcome to contact the listed leader before attending a group, but it is not necessary.
