NAMI DuPage is proud to offer a free peer support group for high school teens dealing with mental health issues. Co-led by a NAMI peer leader and a clinician, this is held in-person at NAMI DuPage. We hope to provide a safe space for peers to learn about mental health, and to support and encourage each other in their individual circumstances.*
This is a “closed group,” in which registration and screening of participants is required to determine appropriate placement. A required parent/guardian and teen orientation is also necessary in order to go over any questions before starting the program.

*PLEASE NOTE: The co-facilitators are mandated reporters. For a teen’s safety, if any cases of alleged abuse or neglect of a teen or someone in their household is disclosed, it will be reported to relevant authorities.
