The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Minnesota sponsors free support groups for families who have a relative with a mental illness. Led by trained facilitators who also have a family member with mental illness, the support groups help families develop better coping skills and find strength through sharing their experiences. A family support group meets in Sartell at
6:30 p.m., on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, at Unity Spiritual Center,
931 5th Ave. N. For information, call Chuck at (320) 290-7713.
