 NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults living with a mental health condition. 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. 

You will receive the meeting link before the meeting begins. Confirmation that your registration has been submitted will be sent via email shortly after your submission. Please email programs@namikdk.org if you have any questions. 

Per NAMI on-line support group recommendations we are asked to collect the following information so that the support group facilitator has a means of contacting and supporting attendees if they are a danger to themselves or others. This demographic information is also used for our grant purposes. The information below will only be used by NAMI KDK and its support group facilitators for this purpose. Your information will not be sold or used in any other way.      

Please read the Informed Consent listed here before registering for the support group. 

NAMI KDK provides in-person Connection Support Group at the Northwestern Medicine Ben Gordon Wellness Center  Conference Room the last Wednesday of each month.
