Free Peer Support Group - NAMI Douglas County WI, 28 October | Event in Superior | AllEvents.in Free Peer Support Group - NAMI Douglas County WI
NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults living with mental illness. 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.
NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model to ensure you and others in the group have an opportunity to be heard and to get what you need. The groups meet on a bi-weekly, weekly or monthly basis.
What You’ll Gain
By sharing your experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you gain hope and develop relationships. The group encourages empathy, productive discussion and a sense of community.
NAMI Connection Recovery 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
Aim for better coping skills
Find strength in sharing experiences
Reject stigma and not tolerate discrimination
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
What People are Saying
“NAMI Connection has enabled me to take a good look at my illness and see that I am not alone. The program has given me additional tools to not only accept my illness, but to help others along the way.”
“… People can solve problems [at a NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group]. It isn't just a bunch of sad stories; people are coming up with solutions and stuff to do for the next week. One of our group attendees is taking her meds and getting herself to her counselor and is just about able to go back to her career in great part due to Connection.”
