FIND HELP.... FIND HOPE....

NAMI Greater Houston is excited to offer an array of Support Groups in an effort to meet your specific interests and needs. Our support groups are peer-led and are designed for any adult who has experienced symptoms of a mental health condition or the people that support their recovery. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others and the groups are led by trained leaders 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 helped.

Pre-registration is required and must be done no later than 4 hours before the support group is scheduled to meet.

So be sure to register early, as limited seats (15 maximum) are available for each session. Participants must be at least 18 years or older.

Healing Circle1

Healing circles build a collective, community capacity for healing. The groups run for 5-weeks and require pre-registration. We all deserve a safe place of nurturance, safety, healing and acceptance. Trauma and emotional deprivation cannot be resolved without a safety net. Healing circles provide that safety. Join one of our circles to be supported by others who seek to co-create that space.

Find Support

If you or someone you know is struggling, you are not alone. There are many supports, services, and treatment options that may help. A change in behavior or mood may be the early warning signs of a mental health condition and should never be ignored. There are many different types of mental illness, and it isn’t easy to simplify the range of challenges people face.

Here are some things to consider when reaching out:

  • If it’s an emergency in which you or someone you know is suicidal, you should immediately call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, call 911 or go to a hospital emergency room.
  • If you can wait a few days, make an appointment with your primary healthcare provider or pediatrician if you think your condition is mild to moderate.
  • If your symptoms are moderate to severe, make an appointment with a specialized doctor such as a psychiatrist. You may need to contact your community mental health center or primary health care provider for a referral.
  • If you or your child is in school or at college, contact the school and ask about their support services.
  • Seek out support groups in your community and educate yourself about your symptoms and diagnosis. Social support and knowledge can be valuable tools for coping.  For help navigating resources in your community, please contact our NAMI S.E.A. Center, and a representative will talk to you, at 713-970-4483.
