We believe NAMI Connection, a Signature Support Program of NAMI can be an essential component of support for people living with mental illness. NAMI Delaware is currently re-building our NAMI Connection programming statewide. We are recruiting volunteer facilitators who are interested in leading these monthly support groups. NAMI Connection is a peer-led support group, so an important qualification for facilitators is that they identify as peers. We provide the training for volunteer support group leaders.

While we rebuild the NAMI Connection groups, we encourage peers/consumers to consider DISCOVER opportunities.

If you would like more information about becoming a NAMI Connection support group leader, please contact Jenn Ford at or at (302) 427-0787 ext. 116.
