NSN Support Group

We offer support groups that are geared to the issues faced by young adults, 18 - 30 years of age.


The developmental needs of this group are addressed in discussions with peers, led by trained, caring facilitators. 

We allow individuals to express themselves in a non-judgmental, confidential, and caring atmosphere.


In addition, we have support groups for adults over the age of 30.


We provide continuing support for all adults who have mental health challenges.
