Support Groups

New schedule for NAMI Family Support Group. On the second Thursday of the month, we will be holding the support group -IN PERSON- in Abington, MA. The 4th Thursday will remain via Zoom. Contact NAMISouthShore@gmail.com for safety requirements and more information. 

We welcome family members, partners and  friends to share common problems which arise from their loved ones' mental health conditions. We provide a secure non-judgmental environment where caregivers can discuss concerns and benefit from the collective knowledge and experience from one another. 

Family-to-Family Class

Family to Family Class will begin again next Fall of 2021

This is a FREE 8-week course for friends, partners and family caregivers of individuals with mental health conditions that discusses the DSM 5 criteria of mental illnesses, what is actually happening in the brain, and how does the medication work. We also share information, the knowledge and skills that family members need to cope effectively. Workshops also include Communication Skills, Problem Solving Skills and Empathy. 

Family-to-Family offers resources, insights, coping skills, and genuine support for friends and families. This is highly recommended by families and clinicians.
