General Support Group



Hello everyone, I'm trying to find a support group (either virtual or in-person) for spouses of those with a history of trauma and mental illness. I haven't had any luck so far, most of what I'm able to find is either very narrowly focused on the military and geared towards parents. If there's anything you've had luck with, or even books you can recommend, please let me know. Likewise I will return and post if my search turns anything up, thanks!


It's always good to check out your local NAMI ( chapter. They often run support groups for supporters of various kinds of mental illnesses. And often, they can help regardless of the family member's diagnosis.

Our forum isn't specifically targeted at supporters of military vets. I agree with @Sweetpea76 - it'd be worth reading around here, and also checking out our articles.
