I need help coping with some of my loved ones symptoms. Can NAMI offer advice or help?

NAMI offers coping tips and information for family members and caregivers. NAMI Family-to-Family and NAMI Basics are ideal for family members, friends and other caregivers seeking answers and guidance. Ongoing support groups provide a safe place to talk to other people going through similar situations. For information on times and locations in your community, contact your NAMI State Organization or NAMI Affiliate.

NAMI also offers discussion groups for caregivers and family members interested in connecting with others online for support and coping strategies. NAMI AIR, a mobile app, also includes a community for family members to provide anonymous support and encouragement.
