What We Offer

What We Offer

NAMI East Bay

4th Wednesday Educational Events

Our monthly educational events will have speaker presentations or, in a more casual format, group discussions around selected topics with invited discussants.  We strive to cover all areas of interest to families who are dealing with relatives or friends with mental illness. These sessions offer time for questions and answers.

Until further notice, meetings will be held on Zoom 7:30-9:00pm with the details and links announced at “What’s New”. Video recording and a written summary will be posted on the website along with the original announcement.  That information will also be sent out in the group mail bulletin.  These sessions are free and open to the public.

Support Groups

Since the pandemic, NAMI East Bay has offered free weekly online support groups every Tuesday from 6:00-8:00pm!  These are free and open to the public.

In-person Support Group

We will hold an in-person support group on the last Saturday of every month, 10:00 am-12:00 pm, at our office on the second floor of the Albany Methodist Church at 980 Stannage Ave, Albany.

Note: We will open the door at 9:30 am but, because of church security concerns, need to close and lock it by 10:10. If necessary, call our office phone at 510- 524-1250.


An electronic bulletin will be sent out twice monthly, announcing educational topics, other events of interest, legislation,  affiliate news, etc. For those paid members uncomfortable with the technical world of email and computers, a paper bulletin will be sent out monthly.  This mailing needs to be requested.


Our “Resources” page is currently being updated to contain names, services offered, and contact information for local resources. We will include a new Glossary, a list of recommended books, along with recommended websites.

Note: Our office at the church at 980 Stannage, Albany, has not been used since the pandemic first entered our lives. We are now in the process of getting it re-organized and anticipate it again becoming a source of informational brochures, a lending library, and site of in-person support groups. We will keep you informed about the date of the grand re-opening this fall.
