Support & Education

Support Groups

NAMI Charleston Area offers confidential peer-led support groups for adult family members and friends to share experiences and resources related to providing care and support for a loved one with a mental health condition (NAMI Family Support).

We also offer confidential peer-led support groups for adults living with mental health conditions to gain a sense of community, hope and insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others (NAMI Connection). 

We are doing our part to help “flatten the curve” for the spread of the Corona Virus. All in-person support groups are cancelled at this time. We will update this page when they resume. In the meantime, we are offering NAMI Connection and NAMI Family Support online through Google Meet. You can download the app on your phone or call the number we will send to you by email or text to join the group on the scheduled times listed below.

NAMI Connection is meeting online weekly on Mondays at 6 PM.

NAMI Family Support Group is meeting online on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 6 PM.

You can sign up to attend the support group by clicking HERE.

We hope you are all safe and well. 

If you would like to talk with someone, please text NAMI to 741741. Please check our resource page and resource guide for information on places you can call or text, if you want to talk with someone about any concerns related to your mental health. You can also visit the NAMI Discussion Groups: https://www.nami.org/find-support/discussion-groups.


Education Meetings

Join us for a FREE Live Educational Presentation
 
Dianne Kosto, CEO and Founder of Symmetry Neuro-Pathway Training, will present via Zoom on Wednesday, July 22 at 6:00 pm. After the presentation, Dianne will be available for a 20-minute Question and Answer session.

Q: What is Neuro-Pathway Training
A: Neuro-Pathway Training is a new program that trains the brain to better regulate, often alleviating unwanted symptoms and behaviors.
Neuro-Pathway uses neurofeedback, a non-invasive alternative to medication, to create personalized training programs to strengthen and guide your brainwaves.
