NAMI Discussion Groups

Dear Friends,

Over the last few years, we have seen declining use of our online forums. Due to limited capacity, we’ve made the difficult decision to devote the time and energy spent managing these groups into other more widely impactful NAMI projects.

The online Discussion Groups hosted on will officially close on Monday, February 5, 2024. We hope you will use this time to transition relationships, save your posts and find other opportunities to connect.

As a user of one or more groups, we want to ensure you have information about similar opportunities. Please consider the following options for online peer support within the mental health community:

Staffed by volunteers with real experience living with mental health conditions, the NAMI HelpLine will also continue to be a resource for you to find help and offer support to others.

Thank you so much for being a part of the NAMI community. We hope you will continue to stay connected through our many support groups and educational programs, available both online and in-person nationwide. To find your local NAMI, visit

In solidarity,
