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.
There are specific support groups available such as borderline personality disorder, men's support group, etc. Information about these groups and how to get in touch with the facilitators is available on namimass.org.
The NAMI Family-to-Family Class is an 8-week course for family members who have loved ones with mental illness. Topics covered are mental health conditions, preparing for a crisis, receiving a mental health diagnosis, sharing our stories, treatment options, communication skills, problem solving, empathy, recovery, self-care and moving forward. The class is taught by family members who have navigated the mental health care system for over 15 years. The class is being offered at the South Shore Baptist Church, 578 Main Street, Hingham on 8 consecutive Wednesday evenings from 6:30-9pm. The classes begin 10/25/23 through 12/13/23.
