Mental Health: Family Support Group Meeting

Join us each second Wednesday evening of the month for a peer-led, confidential family support group for any adult with a loved one who has experienced symptoms of a mental health condition.

SS. Isidore and Maria Parish Mental Health Ministry has partnered with the Connecticut Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to offer a free, confidential, peer-led family support group for any adult with a loved one who has experienced symptoms of a mental health condition.

This family support group holds sessions on the second Wednesday of the month from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the main classroom of the educational wing of St. Paul Church, 2577 Main Street, Glastonbury, CT. Parishioner and NAMI-certified group facilitator Thomas Burr co-leads this group, which is open to the general public.

NAMI support groups are unique because they follow a structured model, ensuring everyone has an opportunity to be heard and to get what they need. They are:

  • Free of cost to participants
  • Designed for adult loved ones of people with mental health conditions
  • Led by family members of people with mental health conditions
  • No specific theological or medical therapy or treatment is endorsed
  • Confidential

This family support group will help participants:

  • Aim for better coping skills
  • Find strength in sharing experiences
  • Not judge anyone’s pain
  • Forgive ourselves and reject guilt
  • Embrace humor as healthy

For more information, contact Thomas Burr by phone at 860-202-4487, or email tburr@namict.org, or Carol Vassar at carol@isidoreandmaria.org.
