How can I find more people in my community with the same issues I have? Are there support groups or family help for SMI? Where can I find more information?

There are several places in which to find more information. There are resources for finding local and online support groups for persons with SMI for various issues through Mental Health America (MHA): http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/find-support-groups

For families, there are support groups and other support services offered through the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and resources can be found at: https://www.namiaustin.org/support/

Many cities have MHA and/or NAMI offices that may be able to direct you to Recovery and/or drop-in-centers and clubhouses. Many such centers are run by individuals with lived experience with psychiatric disorders.
