NAMI Westside LA offers support groups for families impacted by mental illness. Our support groups are free and no registration is required for you to attend.

When a friend or family member develops a mental health condition, it’s important to know that you are not alone. In our family support groups, loved ones of those living with mental illness have the opportunity to share their stories, learn from one another, and give and receive support to others facing similar challenges, in a safe and confidential setting. The groups are peer-led by family members of individuals living with mental illness. Attendees in our support groups report back they they have found comfort and guidance, and have learned new coping skills.
