  • Meetings are normally held the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Pinehurst Fire Department, Training Room, 405 Magnolia Road, Pinehurst, NC 28374.
  • Nine meetings are held each year.  Meetings usually present speakers on various topics followed by a support meeting for those willing to attend. There are no monthly meetings in July, October (due to the annual Mental Illness Awareness Week event), or December.

NAMI Moore County Support Groups

Beginning 14 November 2018, NAMI MC will hold monthly support groups for anyone who is affected by brain illness, either themselves or their family and friends. We will supply a caring, non-judgmental atmosphere where people can come and share or just listen and glean knowledge from others.

Snacks will be served; Bring your own beverage. Come and be among friends – you are not alone!

Meeting schedule for the next three months:

Monday, 01 April 2019 @ 7 pm 

Speaker: Bill Thomas

Bill Thomas will speak on lived experience with Bi-Polar Disorder. In 2016, he helped start a mood disorder peer support group in Yardley, PA. He facilitates the group when in town, and quickly found a curriculum that is focused, simple, self-directed and ongoing. It is called a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP). WRAP allows group members to look at their own situations and develop a set of characteristics they exhibit when feeling well. Then, they determine what daily activities keep them well, and try and do each thing daily (i.e., take meds, exercise, etc.). They keep the plan written in a WRAP book and add or subtract components as required.
