Who is this for?
NAMI DuPage in partnership with Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital is proud to offer a peer support group free of charge for high school teens dealing with mental health issues like sadness and anxiety. There is nothing like being in a room with others who know what is like to live with similar concerns. We also believe you have a lot to teach and learn from each other when it comes to mental wellness! Co-led by a NAMI peer leader and Good Samaritan Clinician, we hope to provide a safe space of peer support and learning.*
