Peer Support Groups in Vermont

 

 

 

 

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group Meetings are free, 90-minute recovery support groups for people living with a mental health condition where people learn from one another’s experiences, share coping strategies, and offer mutual encouragement and understanding.  The groups provide an ongoing opportunity to discuss the challenges of living with a mental health condition and techniques for maintaining wellness.  Meetings are facilitated by trained NAMI peers living in recovery.

Here at NAMI Vermont, we are constantly reviewing updates regarding COVID-19 and attempting to deliver programs and supports to interested participants.  During this time, we are very aware of the concerns of hosting in-person programs for participants, so we’re offering our support groups on Zoom.  We’re looking out for everyone in this challenging time!

 

NAMI Vermont’s Connection Recovery Support Group is a peer support group for adults living with a mental health condition.  These grups provide a safe place that offers respect, understanding, encouragement, and hope to all who attend.
