Due to precautions necessitated by                                           COVID 19 all in-person Support Group 

 Meetings are canceled until further notice

Virtual meetings will be held via the

online meeting platform, Zoom.

We care about our NAMI Family and that is why we made the difficult decision to suspend all community activities, including our support groups, for the foreseeable future. 

This decision will be reviewed weekly- we miss you already and hope to see everyone soon!
 
Our commitment to provide the information and support you need, now more than ever, has not changed.  NAMI Scranton & Northeast Region will now be offering virtual support groups.  Our groups will still follow NAMI guidelines and protocols but instead of meeting in person, we will meet over the internet using our computers, phones and other smart devices.

Concerns:

Like our in-person groups, these meetings will be facilitated by experienced facilitators who are either family members or persons living with mental illness.  

Anyone concerned about privacy can rest assured that NAMI Scranton & Northeast Region will not record virtual support group sessions, chats will not be saved, and we will not capture your personal information, or use any information you provide during group in any way unless Pennsylvania law for mandated reporting dictates otherwise.

Your comfort and safety will be our priority.  We welcome your feedback, concern or questions at info@naminepa.org

Meetings will be reoccurring on Monday and Thursday evenings for the duration.  We will send out future meeting ID info soon.  We are still working out some details for those meetings! 

Scranton Meetings are held in the Advocacy Alliance Media Center, 841 Jefferson Avenue in Scranton, on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.

 

Wayne County meetings are held at the Lakeville Volunteer Fire House, 10 Daniels Road in Lakeville, on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month form 7:00 to 9:00 PM

The meetings are free and open to all; those living with a mental illness and those whose family member or friend is living with a mental illness.

Check out our full calendar of events!

Candlelight Vigil

On Friday, October 4, 2019 The NAMI Scranton & Northeast Region will officially kick off the observance of National Mental Illness Awareness Week by holding its Annual Candlelight Vigil on the Spruce Street side of the Lackawanna County Courthouse in Scranton. The event will begin at 6:00 PM and end at sundown with the lighting of the candles. This event is intended to educate the people in the Northeast PA community about mental illness, and to end stigma by celebrating the great strides that have been made in diagnosing and treating mental illness.
