Mental Illness Is Not a Choice

Mental illnesses are medical conditions which disrupt a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others, and daily functioning.

Recovery is an individual approach consisting of many pathways and is strength-based and person-driven.

Peer to Peer support groups

NAMI Southwestern Wisconsin offers a support group for persons living with a mental health diagnosis/condition in a safe, organized and confidential environment. The support group is led by people living well in recovery or family members who have been trained to meet NAMI’s high standards.
