What is NAMI C.A.R.E? Consumers Advocating Recovery through Empowerment

  • A peer-based, mutual support group program for individuals facing the challenges of recovering from a serious mental illness.
  • A group led by consumers, for consumers, that employs guidelines and principales of support designed to empower its members.
  • A group for all consumers with any diagnosis of any kind of mental illness.  NAMI-C.A.R.E. is not illness-specific, and welcomes persons with all psychiatric diagnoses.
  • A support group model that focuses on allowing all participants to share their experiences and learn from each other in a safe and confidential environment.

Why is support important?

  • Feelings of isolation can be immobilizing.  Support can give relief from isolation while giving the opportunity not only associate within a group, but possibly form meaningful, lasting, individual friendships.
  • Sharing our own experiences can lead to increased self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-confidence.
  • Groups provide great opportunities for for learning new strategies and options for dealing with the day-to-day rigors of living with any mental illness.
  • Support can keep us focused on the here and now, while moving us forward with our recovery.
