NAMI Virtual Support GroupsDue to COVID-19, all NAMI CC support groups have been suspended. Please visit www.namicolorado.org and click on “Virtual Support Groups” for a list of virtual NAMI Connection and NAMI Family Support Groups in Colorado.
Another website I have found helpful during this challenging time is www.cmbm.org. The Center for Mind-Body Medicine has some great resources for reducing stress and anxiety. Many of their webinars are free and they offer virtual practice groups.
If you are a member of NAMI, you can join a discussion group on www.nami.org. Just go to the website and click on “Support and Education” and then “Online Discussion Groups.” Groups are broken down according to mental health condition and caregiver support. Not a member? You can also sign up to be a member, and half of your membership fee will go to your local affiliate, NAMI Chaffee County CO. The other half goes to support the national organization and millions of people affected by mental illness.
If you are in crisis and need someone to talk to immediately, you can call Colorado Crisis Services, 24/7. They will listen, help you problem solve, and connect you with resources. Call 844-493-8255 or Talk and Text 38255. Call 911 if you or someone you are with is in a life threatening emergency.
