NAMI Glendale offers an array of  support groups for people living with mental illness as well as for their families, friends, loved ones, and supporters.

NAMI Family Support Group offers support for family members and loved ones of those living with a mental illness. We offer these groups in English, Spanish, and Armenian 




  • For family members/loved ones of someone living with a mental illness
  • Meeting dates and times are available on our calendar and home page 

"Using the support group model is so essential to the success of our family support groups. Without the training, networking, and support of the group members I fear that support groups would become nothing more than "cry" sessions or “gripe” sessions. As a group the collective wisdom covered a lot of possibilities towards the issues."


 The English language Family Support Groups meet every week on Tuesday and Sunday.
