We hope that everyone is getting the resources they need to stay safe and
healthy while learning. For us, that means access to recorded classes. If

NAMI Connections Group for University of Minnesota Law Students

The NAMI Connection group offers peer-led support for law students living
with mental health disorders who attend the University of Minnesota Law
School.

NAMI Connection is a recovery support group for adults with a mental
illness regardless of their diagnosis. This group is offered free of charge
and is led by trained individuals who are also in recovery – people who
understand the challenges folks with mental illness face.

This is a hybrid model. You can join in-person or via Zoom.

There is a 20 person limit. We still have plenty of room!

No need to register – simply show up!

Who: UMN law students living with mental illness

What: Peer-led support group!

When: 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of each month; 5-6:30pm
