Support Groups

ADAMH understands the benefit of support groups. Recently there has been an increasing awareness of the role that mental health support and self-help groups play in recovery from mental illnesses. For this reason, ADAMH would like to provide the following information to those looking for support through a support group.

**The list below was compiled to assist consumers and family members who are seeking more information. It is not a comprehensive list, but is compiled of support groups within our System of Care and other community partners. Additional support groups may be held at other ADAMH Network Providers. Please see the Our Network page for additional information about the providers in our ADAMH Board of Franklin County System of Care.
