Find Help, Find Hope!

NAMI is here to help

We have and will continue to modify our services to meet the increasing need for peer support services caused by the pandemic, while at the same time limiting person-to-person contact.  In summary, our programs have been modified as follows:  

 

NAMI Support Groups:  NAMI’s Connections and Family Support Group meetings are occurring at the regularly scheduled times by virtual meetings on Zoom.  For instructions on how to log in, click on the meeting in the calendar on our website: namigainesville.org/calendar.

 

Courses and Presentations:  Due to continuing concerns about safety during this pandemic, The Basics, Family to Family, Peer to Peer, Ending the Silence and In Our Own Voice programs have all been moved to the online we conferencing platform, Zoom. You can view our 2021 course schedule under the Schedule tab or click HERE

 

NAMI Gainesville Administration Line: For general information about our Programs, opportunities to volunteer or to speak to staff please call (352)320-0457 or email info@namigainesville.org

 

NAMI Gainesville Helpline: If you need support please call our confidential helpline: (352) 335-7770.  Leave a message and your call will be returned  within 24 hrs. by a trained NAMI volunteer.

 

Going forward we will be posting periodic updates on Facebook with changes to our services and information about other community services for peers – please follow us on Facebook at NAMI Gainesville if you are not already doing so. 

 

If you are a peer and need services or someone to talk to, please call us.  If you are someone who knows a peer who needs support, call us.  We are here to help.

To solve the elusive medical mystery of why many adults have both high blood pressure and depression, University of Florida Health researchers took a long, in-depth look at one suspected culprit: gut bacteria.

The gut microbiome affects physiology and molecular events throughout the body, including parts of the brain that control blood pressure and depression, newly published findings show...
