Due to Covid-19 and restrictions on gatherings NAMI Ventura County is now offering support groups in a Zoom online format.


Care & Share Family Support Groups provide support, education, advocacy and information to family members and friends of those suffering with severe mental illness.  Each person has an opportunity, if they wish, to share their current situation with the group.  Since everyone attending has or is going through similar issues, everyone can offer understanding and comfort.  Often group members are able to offer helpful ideas, suggestions and resources.

Each group is coordinated by a trained support group facilitator who is also the family member of a person living with serious mental illness.

Family Support Groups meet regularly as shown below.  Please call NAMI Ventura County at (805-641-2426 for more information.

Please note – These NAMI groups are restricted to family members or friends who are supporting a person with a mental illness.

Online Groups starts at 6:30 pm on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Tuesday of each month. (Online group is from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm)

Registration form is required to receive the link to the group by e-mail.

(For consumer/client support groups, see the NAMI Calendar.)
