NAMI of Erie County is aware of the additional challenges that our Erie community faces with the spread of COVID-19. Individuals with mental health conditions, caregivers and loved ones are all facing unique needs and concerns. That's why NAMI has created an online support group weekdays at noon to help folks coping with COVID-19. No formal diagnosis is required. NAMI of Erie County is doing our part to strengthen the Erie community. We’re stronger together. Please adhere to all of the safety guidelines issued by our local representatives.
