NAMI Support Groups
How To Attend
NAMI Kern County will use Zoom to host Online Support Groups. Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video. You can contact 661-247-5426 with any questions.
Anyone is welcome to register for and join a group. Please note: our NAMI Support Groups are CLOSED MEETINGS. In order to keep our group settings safe and confidential, we do not allow anyone to observe our support groups. If you are not in need of the support each group provides and are only joining a group to observe the process, you will be removed.
NAMI Online Support Groups and Forums are not intended to replace or be used as a substitute for clinical or medical services, and facilitators are NAMI-trained peers, not mental health professionals. By attending and participating in NAMI Kern County’s Online Support Groups and Forums, you agree to abide by Group Guidelines and Principles of Support outlined at the start of each meeting, and can be removed and/or banned from any meeting at the staff and/or facilitators’ discretion.
