Find Help, Find Hope!

Need support? We can help in several ways…

  • Warmline (866-960-6264 or email info@namisoco.org). Our Warmline is a non-crisis support line, but we can provide a safe place to talk about feelings of anxiousness, stress or isolation, support, information, guidance and help with navigating to other resources that can help.

  • Virtual Support Groups, ongoing and free. Our virtual groups (below) provide a safe place to find a connection with others, to counteract isolation, share insights and experience a sense of community. If you have questions about any of these groups, please contact our Warmline at 866-960-6264. The Warmline will make sure that you receive an emailed link to join one or more of these free sessions. The Warmline can assist you if you are not sure how to access these groups online or do not have a desktop, laptop or smartphone:
    • Family Support Group: 2:00 PM every Thursday (For anyone supporting someone who lives with a mental health condition)

    • Connection Support Groups: 11:30 AM & 5:30 PM every Thursday (For anyone in recovery from a mental health condition)
    • Wellness Chat & Check Ins: 12:00 PM every Wednesday and 4:30 PM every Friday (For anyone!)
    • Wildfire Support Group: 12:30 PM and 5:30 PM every Tuesday (For anyone whose wildfire experience has meant increased concerns, stress or sleep problems)
    • To join a NAMI Sonoma County group, please call the Warmline at (866) 960-6264 or email info@namisoco.org. If you know someone who you think would like to participate, please encourage them to contact us or let us know!
  • NAMI’s COVID-19 Guide, available in English and Spanish, is a downloadable guide available to the general public for free, filled with credible, reputable-source information. The guide includes general information about COVID-19, information for anyone feeling extra stress or anxiety at this time and information for those with a loved one who is homeless or incarcerated and living with mental illness.
