a group of people at the NAMI support event in Orange County, CA

Barn Life Recovery’s National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) support group is the only on-site mental health support group available in all of Orange County, CA. This support group is peer led and is for people with mental health conditions to discuss the challenges they face in a supportive and nurturing environment. The sessions offer participants an opportunity to share their experiences and gain support, help, tips, and resources from other attendees.

While there is currently an oversaturation of peer-led support groups for substance abuse and other addictions, there is a significant gap in community care for mental health, which Barn Life is hoping to fill. It’s our philosophy that illnesses such as substance abuse are symptoms of deeper underlying conditions of mental illness, which we aim to tackle head-on.

Led by certified NAMI group leaders who have lived experience dealing with mental health issues, this group provides support to those who otherwise might feel as if they have to carry their burdens on their own. People living with mental illness often feel like sharing their emotions with friends and family members creates a burden on those loved ones. This causes people dealing with mental illness to attempt to fight their battles on their own rather than seek the support they need. Through our NAMI Support Group, attendees can feel like their concerns are being heard without the guilt associated with sharing their experiences.

This group meets in-person weekly for an hour and a half on Mondays from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Each week tackles a specific theme (such as depression, boundaries, self-care, relationships, etc.), in which participants are encouraged to share their thoughts and experiences regarding that theme. Participants are not required to be officially diagnosed with any type of mental illness to attend – this group is open to anyone who feels it would be beneficial for them.

Like all other Barn Life Recovery groups, our NAMI support group does not require a registration to attend and is totally free to the public. You do not need to be a client of Barn Life Recovery to participate in our group.

At Barn Life Recovery, we host support groups as a way of normalizing mental health by modeling the characteristics of a supportive community. We want to create a non-judgmental environment where people feel safe. Join Us!

For any questions about this community support group please contact our facilitator, Matt.

Hear From Those We've Impacted

Barn Life is uniquely special. As someone who has had long stretches of sobriety with "traditional" communities and methods, Barn Life stepped in when I started struggling during the pandemic and said "traditional" methods failed to help.The staff here are exceptional. This is a truly subjective statement, but it is my honest opinion that the people from the owner (Hi Matt!) to EVERYONE else works there because they believe in the work and want to share the tools they found.Barn Life and their little sibling, Peer Mental Wellness were the launchpad from a shell of an existence to person with self-love/respect, and a life-mission of personal development.

Best for someone looking for spiritual healing in addition to their mental health healing.

Barn life is probably one of the most amazing facilities you could ever attend when it comes to mental illness. This was the first place that popped up when I was searching for help and I’m so thankful that it did. The environment is very therapeutic, the staff is awesome, and the group discussions and activities were so helpful in me understanding what I was experiencing. Do not hesitate to be a part of this place. It’s literally a game changer. I was only there for 6 weeks but I wished I stayed at least 6 months. Ever since returning home, I’ve been much happier and my perspective has changed dramatically. I’ve done things and participated in events at my college that I never thought I would be able to do. This place is truly amazing and I’m forever grateful that I found this place.

My daughter has been at Barn Life Recovery now for two months. It was my last resort to send her 9 hours away from me. She has been in drug and mental health rehabs in and out for two years. This was my last stitch effort to save my daughter and get her back to herself. Alyssa and I spoke multiple times before deciding. Their willingness to do everything for her and the different teams they have work with them is amazing. My daughter is happy again and clean and sober. She loves it there in their outpatient program. They restore your faith in humanity. They help restore someone who is broken in so many places to themselves. They have put the light back in my daughters eyes. They are committed to helping each person who truly wants the help. They assist in helping them get jobs and be responsible members of society. I recommend their program to anyone wanting to recover from drug, alcohol and mental health.Thank you to all the people at Barn Life who have made my daughter smile and bring the light back to her eyes. I am truly grateful.DawnaLee
