NAMI Colorado Springs creates and cultivates a welcoming community of peers who educate, support and advocate for people and families navigating mental health conditions. We offer various no-cost education programs and support groups in both in-person and virtual settings, and deliver resource and referral services 9 to 5, Monday through Friday. With volunteers and partners, we fight stigma and champion recovery.
One in five of us will experience a mental health condition in a given year. And when these conditions go untreated, they reverberate throughout the most hot-button areas of our community: criminal justice, homelessness, health care, unemployment and more. Fueled largely by more than 80 volunteers, NAMI offers no-cost peer-based support that meets people and families where they are and helps them connect and heal.
NAMI needs people living with mental health conditions, as well as family members, to lead support groups and to speak about their experiences in the community. All training costs are covered.
In the first half of 2023, NAMI Colorado Springs started offering no-cost support groups for LGBTQ2IA+ community members and for Spanish speakers.
