Parent Warmline

Many parents feel isolated and overwhelmed by their child’s behaviors or mental illnesses and don’t know where to start or to whom they can talk. If you feel this way and don’t have time to attend support groups and classes or even make a phone call, contact the parent email warmline at NAMI Minnesota to connect with a parent peer specialist.

Each member of the NAMI parent educator support team is a parent of a child or young adult with mental illnesses or challenging behaviors. We can help you find resources, answers to your questions, a support network, and you will know that you are not alone.
