What is the Family Support Group?
When a loved one struggles with a mental health condition, regardless of diagnosis, families are profoundly impacted. Talking with others & sharing insights, coping strategies, resources, & encouragement can be a lifeline. Free & confidential, this support group is facilitated by trained peers who also experience a mental illness in their family.  

Where does the Family Support Group Meet?

Family Support Group meets online and in the NAMI Juneau office in the Mendenhall Mall Annex, located at

What is the Connection Support Group?
If you're struggling with your mental health we invite you to drop-in.  Facilitated by trained facilitators, the Connection support group is a mutual support group, not therapy group.  Meetings provide a sense of community for individuals experiencing similar challenges, & a confidential place to be heard, offer insight & hope, & receive support.
