NAMI Connection meetings are peer led small group meetings facilitated by NAMI trained leaders. Participants talk about the challenges they face, and brainstorm solutions when necessary based on shared group experience.  These meetings are a safe place where people diagnosed with a mental illness can find empathy and understanding, and an outlet to express themselves.
