The NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program (F2F) for family members of persons with severe mental illness. This program of 12 weekly two-and-a-half hour sessions is taught by trained family members. It provides support, education, skills training, and crisis intervention help for family members. For more information, see https://namimainlinepa.org/
The Bryn Mawr Family Member Support Group meets the first Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in Bryn Mawr. If you have a family member or loved one with mental illness and are interested in this support group, please contact Diane at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cecilia at email@example.com for more information.
The Havertown NAMI Family Support Group is a free, confidential and safe group of families helping other families who live with mental health challenges. In this support group, families join a caring group of individuals helping one another by utilizing their collective lived experiences and learned wisdom. Family members can achieve a renewed sense of hope for their loved one living with mental health challenges. In the interest of safety and compliance with NAMI, state, and local guidelines, the Havertown NAMI Family Support Group will not meet face-to-face on Tuesday, March 17. Instead, you are invited to call into a conference line: 712-451-0200 and use access 564650. We are working on setting up future meetings via Zoom, which is a web-based application. We will send instructions once we have them. For more information, please contact Nora at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer support group for adults living with mental illness run and led by NAMI-trained facilitators. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others in a confidential setting. NAMI Connection will meet weekly on Tuesday evenings in Bryn Mawr. Please note that in-person meetings have been temporarily suspended as a precaution. We are developing an alternate meeting plan and will announce that as soon as the plan is finalized. For more information on the location and time of our meetings, please contact Danielle Sulpizio at (484) 880-0660 or Ed Kane at (484) 744-0860.
