support groups are still available via video conferencing and we will be hosting family support groups in-person on the first Saturday of the month.

See specific programs listed below for important details.

In light of the spreading COVID-19, NAMI KDK is hosting all support groups via Zoom web conferencing for the foreseeable future. It’s easy and confidential. Join a meeting by smart phone, computer, or telephone.
