CONNECTION MEETINGS

NAMI Nebraska Connection is a Mental Health and Co-Occurring disorder recovery support group program for adults living with mental illness that is expanding in communities in the state of Nebraska. Connection groups offers a place to receive respect, understanding, encouragement, and hope. Meetings are free of charge and follows a flexible structure without an educational format.

NAMI Connection meetings are offered throughout the state of Nebraska in several towns with one mission: Support and encouragement for those suffering from mental illness.

Those who have attended NAMI Connection Meetings say the shared experience offered by the connection of others is invaluable especially when isolated by their friends and family. NAMI Connection meetings is where peers can provide and share information ranging from group wisdom and recovery strategies to options of how a person with mental illness can cope and grow in the community. People involved say this exchange of information is one of the most valuable elements of participating in NAMI Connection Meetings.

Also, NAMI Connection Support Groups offer citizens with mental illness support and the opportunity to release the emotions they may have otherwise kept to themselves.

FAMILY SUPPORT GROUPS

These groups are for family and friends of people living with a mental illness. Participants can talk frankly about their challenges and help one another through their learned wisdom. These meetings are facilitated by trained NAMI members who also have a close family member living with a mental illness.
