Our bimonthly newsletters contain much of the information located in the What’s New section.  More detail may be found on the website, along with other writings.  Of greatest value is the comprehensive recording of the previous month’s general meeting presentation.  Fortunately, these summaries are available for the last 22 years – !! – as recorded by Tom Thomas and listed on his website at www.thomastthomas.com -under NAMI EastBay In the box on his home page.

Online Support Groups

Our support group offerings are changing radically in these unprecedented times. Starting Tuesday, April 14, online support groups will be held from 6:00-8:00 pm on a weekly basis.

These will occur using the Zoom platform, which provides access through the downloading of the Zoom app.

In order to deem this process manageable in terms of numbers, we ask that potential participants send an email to our office at namieastbay@gmail.com, indicating interest for specific dates. We will send back confirmation and information about passwords, meeting ID and logistics.

For the time being, there will be no distinction between groups for families of youth/young adults and families of adults.

As this process becomes more comfortable, we anticipate that this process may be modified.

Voices, Visions & Beliefs Groups

All in-person meetings have been cancelled until further notice.

BAHVN Berkeley Support Group Meetings  are now online.
