About NAMI Frederick County
NAMI Frederick County is a non-profit, all volunteer organization that provides support and education to families confronted with the issues presented by mental illness.
Family support groups lead by trained volunteers meet several times a month in locations throughout Frederick. Our leaders are all family members who are not only trained but have personal experience coping with the issues that confront families of mentally ill family members.
There are also support groups for those who are dealing with a mental illness themselves. The groups are lead by trained volunteers also dealing with mental illness. Discussions are supportive and provide insight into coping with treatment, interacting with family, caregivers and those within their social and work lives.
