NAMI CONNECTIONS is a confidential support group exclusively for people who live with a mental health condition. This Wednesday and Friday, NAMI offers a special Connection group specifically for people who are grappling with the emotional aftermath of the recent violence in Highland Park or another violent incident in your community.

This free zoom event is open to anyone in Illinois who lives with a mental health condition and would like help processing the painful trauma of this act.  Please note: NAMI support groups are not a substitute for therapy from a professional clinician, nor are they a forum for political advocacy. Connection is a free, non-clinical discussion in a safe, non-judgmental setting.  The group encourages empathy, productive discussion, and community, while helping you discover your own inner strength.

All meetings are confidential. The information you share is used for facilitation only and is not disclosed to any other party. At your discretion, you may choose to share your contact information only with your local NAMI affiliate.

Registration is required no later then 3:30 PM the day of the event. Confidential call-in information will be provided by 4 pm the day of event.  If you have difficulties registering, please contact

For those living with a mental health condition and are grappling with the emotional aftermath of this or another violent event.
