FREE SUPPORT GROUPS FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH MENTAL ILLNESS
Are you living with mental illness and looking for support from others who have lived experience with mental illness and recovery? NAMI-Western Massachusetts offers FREE Peer support groups in Agawam, Easthampton and Palmer. Our groups are not therapy groups; they offer a casual and relaxed approach to sharing the challenges and successes of coping with mental illness. Individuals with any mental illness are welcome. Our support groups are run by trained NAMI Connection facilitators who are in recovery themselves and use the guidelines of our successful national program. For schedules and more information, please call our office at (413) 786-9139, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our support page for more information.
Better Business Bureau
We are thrilled to announce that in 2011, NAMI was included in a select list of charities that meet the Better Business Bureau’s “Wise Giving Alliance” standards and was featured with other charities in a full-page ad in USA Today. Along with our recent upgrade to a four-star rating (the highest score) from Charity Navigator, this is a wonderful testament to our efforts to be good stewards of donors’ dollars.
