Family, Friend, Caregiver Support Groups

NAMI Greater Cleveland is now offering family support groups on the phone!

Our virtual family support groups will follow NAMI guidelines, policy, procedures and protocol – but instead of meeting in person, we will meet over the phone! Virtual meetings are new for all of us. Please be patient as we all learn together. Just follow the steps below (we recommend that you call 5-10 minutes beforehand in case you run into any difficulty):
FAMILY GROUP (for family member, friend or caregiver of an adult with mental illness)
Wednesday 7:00-8:30 PM
Join by calling 216-352-6137
You will be prompted to enter the following code: 804 026 902, then push pound (#) to continue.
FAMILY GROUP – DUAL DIAGNOSIS (for family member, friend or caregiver of persons with mental illness and substance use disorder)
