Currently, most of NAMI Fox Valley’s support groups meet online via the Zoom platform. We are, however, offering a limited number of in-person peer support groups beginning in August 2021. More information on the specific types of in-person support groups can be found below.

NAMI Fox Valley’s peer support groups offer support and understanding based on the wisdom of lived experience. Our facilitators are not therapists and our groups are not intended to replace therapeutic counseling.

Questions regarding support groups should be directed to Vicki Rivera at vicki@namifoxvalley.org or 920-740-4565.

Beginning in August 2021, the following in-person groups will be meeting at NAMI Fox Valley’s office at 211 E. Franklin St., Appleton, WI 54911:
