Join a Support Group Online

Due to Governor Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy proclamation, we are no longer meeting in person.

During this difficult time with COVID-19 with most of us staying home, NAMI SW WA will still provide support groups, at no cost. We will be using an online meeting platform called Zoom.

To join a group, click the link below under the support group you want to join. You may use your phone (using the Zoom app), your computer, or a tablet.

After registering and joining the meeting, you can use your device’s microphone. If you don’t have a microphone, call one of the phone numbers given below and enter the Meeting ID associated with the group and then your Participant ID you were given after registering when prompted. (All this information will pop up after you register and click JOIN).

 

If you do not have access to a computer or the internet, you can call into the meeting using either of the below phone numbers and enter the Meeting ID number that is associated with the group.

  1. Call one of the four available numbers (if one is busy, try the next one): (971) 247-1195; (213) 338-8477; (253) 215-8782; (301) 715-8592
  2. Enter the 9- or 11-digit Meeting ID for the meeting you’re attending and hit the # button
  3. Press # again when asked for a Participant ID
  4. You will be taken to the meeting; please announce yourself
  5. If it’s possible, please mute yourself when you aren’t talking so that background noise is limited

* Please remember these are confidential meetings and our group guidelines still apply even if you are physically not at group.

* If you need help getting on zoom or troubleshooting, email info@namiswwa.org.

Who can attend?

The Connection Recovery Support Group is suitable for any adult living with mental illness.

The Family Support Group is suitable for any adult who has a loved one affected by mental illness.

For example, while we respect that many people may fall under both criteria, it is important that participants understand that NAMI Connection Support Group is for people living with mental illness seeking support for their own mental illness and not their family members. While NAMI Family Support Group is for people seeking support and insight from others from the challenges and success from others who have loved ones living with mental illness.

*Observers are not allowed in any NAMI Online Programs. All participants must meet the criteria of the Zoom Meeting they are attending.
