Support Groups

Lean on Us for Support. You are not alone. Come to a VIRTUAL meeting. All NAMI-SFV programs are free.

FREE small groups for individuals and family members

Small groups (usually a group of six to ten) share their mental illness problems and stories. Since everyone attending has or is going through the same things, everyone understands and offers comfort. Often someone has a helpful idea or describes a similar experience and how it worked out. NAMI San Fernando Valley is made up of volunteers who have faced mental illness and have experience that can help you. We’ve been there and we are here to help you. We welcome you to visit any of our regularly scheduled meetings. No one has to share unless he or she wants to. To receive the link please fill out this 2 question form (CLICK HERE).

Find the group and location that is best for you by visiting our online NAMISFV calendar to see What’s Happening today for NAMI SFV members and community.
