Resource Groups for Parents of Children

“NAMI gave me hope when I had no hope.”


Parent Resource Groups

NAMI Minnesota provides support groups to help parents discover resources to meet the challenges of raising a child with a mental illness, learn coping skills and develop problem solving skills.  The support groups are facilitated by a parent who has a child with a mental illness and who has received specialized training.  Click here for a full list of support groups.

Parent Resource Online Support Group

NAMI Minnesota’s online Parent Resource support group is the perfect solution for parents who cannot attend a group in person. No chat rooms or forums. You can talk live to real people from the comfort of your home. Use a computer, tablet, or smartphone to connect to your peers online.

The group meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. For more information, contact Jennie at jenniebrinkworth@gmail.com.
