Peer Group for Mental Illness in Leadville
When it comes to mental illness, most of the lens is focused on the patient. But having a support system in place for those family and friends who live with and provide additional care for their loved ones is also important. Now thanks to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) High Country Colorado, people can take advantage of a FREE upcoming Family Support Group in Leadville on Tuesday, Feb.20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lake County Public Library (Baby Doe Room).
“This course overall was the single most, without a doubt, helpful and informative thing ever offered in all my years searching for answers,” shared one participant. “It has helped me to understand better and communicate more effectively with my brother.”
The NAMI Family Support Group is a peer-led support group for family members and caregivers of loved ones and individuals living with mental illness. Thousands of families describe the program as life-changing. This group is led by trained facilitators who are also family members and know what it is like to have a loved one living with mental illness.
“The most beneficial thing for me was that I am not alone. I found the NAMI Family Support Group at the time I really needed it!” Now you can too. Text or phone to register or for more information 970-471-5926.
