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 the techniques for maintaining wellness. All 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 alternatives by video conference meetings on Zoom. We’re looking out for everyone in this challenging time.
