Faith communities serve as trusted neighborhood voices and are often first responders when individuals and families face mental health challenges. Faith communities are can help reduce stigma around mental health, and provide information about resources and advocacy tools.
NAMI FaithNet is an interfaith resource network of NAMI members, friends, clergy and congregations of all faith traditions who wish to encourage faith communities who are welcoming and supportive of persons and families living with mental illness.
We encourage an exchange of information, tools and other resources which will help educate and inspire faith communities about mental illness and the vital role spirituality plays in recovery for many.
NAMI FaithNet is not a religious network but includes an effort to outreach to all religious organizations.
Please contact Andrew Tuttle to learn how you can bring NAMI to your community.

Spiritual Support Group 1 st and 3 rd Thursday of each month at 7 pm
This is a spiritual support group for people of all faiths or no faith, for those who themselves have a mental illness and for those who love someone who has a mental illness. We ask those who wish, to bring a quote from a source of inspiration on the topic of the week. We will start by introducing ourselves and then take turns reading a quote, and then we or others in the group may make short comments about the quote. Each person should follow the guidelines of showing respect, not arguing, not lecturing, not monologuing, not interrupting, not proselytizing, and keeping comments upbeat.
