YARDLEY GROUP TIME/LOCATION CHANGE

Our NAMI Connection Peer Recovery Support Group that once met at the Makefield Executive Quarters will now meet at Congregation Beth El of Bucks County – 375 Stony Hill Road, Yardley, PA 19067 beginning with our next meeting on Monday, March 4, 2019. The time will also change, and we will meet from 2-3:30pm on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Mondays of each month. We’d like to thank Beth El for generously providing a safe and affirming space for us to meet. This is a free, non-religious meeting, and all are welcome! No registration required.

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults living with mental illness. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by NAMI-trained facilitators who’ve been there.

NAMI’s Support Groups are unique because they follow a structured model to ensure you and others in the group have an opportunity to be heard and to get what you need. The groups meet on a bi-weekly, weekly or monthly basis.

We are a support group that focuses on allowing participants to share their experiences and learn from each other in a safe environment.  We don’t take attendance + We don’t take names + We don’t keep records = 100% CONFIDENTIALITY. No registration required.

What You’ll Gain

By sharing your experiences in a safe and confidential setting, you gain hope and develop relationships. The group encourages empathy, productive discussion and a sense of community.

NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group will help you:

  • See the individual first, not the illness
  • Recognize that mental illnesses are medical illnesses that may have environmental triggers
  • Understand that mental illnesses are traumatic events
  • Aim for better coping skills
  • Find strength in sharing experiences
  • Reject stigma and not tolerate discrimination
  • Not judge anyone’s pain
  • Forgive ourselves and reject guilt
  • Embrace humor as healthy
  • Accept that we cannot solve every problem
  • Work for a better future in a realistic way

What People Are Saying

“NAMI Connection has enabled me to take a good look at my illness and see that I am not alone. The program has given me additional tools to not only accept my illness, but to help others along the way.”

“… People can solve problems [at a NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group]. It isn’t just a bunch of sad stories; people are coming up with solutions and stuff to do for the next week. One of our group attendees is taking her meds and getting herself to her counselor and is just about able to go back to her career in great part due to Connection.
