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: The Basics, Family to Family, Peer to Peer, Ending the Silence and In Our Own Voice programs were suspended in March and our instructors and presenters have been re-assigned to support the Helpline and our new Peer Mentoring programs.
NAMI Helpline: The Helpline at 352 335-7770 is open and is taking calls. We have also added an administration number for general information or non-helpline requests, 352 320-0457.
NAMI Peer Mentoring Programs: NAMI Gainesville’s new adult and youth Peer Mentoring programs started operations in March and are taking applications. These programs offer one-on-one (in person or virtual) mentoring that focuses on the unique needs of the individual being served. For information about these programs or for instructions to apply or refer someone, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Going forward we will be posting daily 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.
We have updated our information poster that displays a list of all the services offered by NAMI Gainesville.
If you would like a laminated copy, on us, please email .
Family Support Group
We will be holding our Family Support Groups through Zoom (online or via phone) on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month from 7pm-8:30pm, beginning in April.
If you are interested in joining a meeting, please email for more information.
See the person not the illness, take action, take the pledge and be . . .
