NAMI Wichita has multiple support groups set up to meet the diverse needs of our members.
For people living with mental illness, a safe environment that offers a place to express themselves and receive support without being judged is a critical component of recovery and wellness. In recognition of this need, NAMI Wichita has launched an every-other-week support group, NAMI Connection. The NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group offers an inclusive place to learn from other’s experiences, share coping strategies and offer encouragement and support. Interacting with persons with similar life experiences lets one know that other people also live successfully with these chronic brain diseases. This group meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Breakthrough Club / Episcopal Social Services 1010 North Main Wichita, KS 67203 Enter through the front door and go to the left to the dinning room for the Support Group.
Our Family Support Group is for family members and caregivers of adults living with mental illness. Facilitated by a family member, this group offers a forum to share common experiences and concerns. This group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Breakthrough Club / Episcopal Social Services 1010 North Main Wichita, KS 67203 Enter through the front door and go to the elevator to the second floor for the Support Group.
THIS Life is our support group for parents and caregivers of children and adolescents experiencing behavioral issues or symptoms of mental illness. Participants will share coping strategies and offer encouragement and support. This group has been discontinued due to lack of interest. We encourage you to attend the NAMI Family Support Group until this group reforms.
