Answers about Maine mental health resources
for families and other supporters


Q: Are there Maine Support Groups for families and friends of a loved one facing a mental health crisis?

Yes. The Maine Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has trained volunteer family member facilitators who hold support groups in their communities. They know what you are going through and being with others who understand your challenges can be both comforting and helpful. For specific support group info, visit NAMI Maine.

Q:  What other resources can I find in Maine for families and friends of a loved one with a mental illness?

Visit our Maine Mental Health Resources page to find Maine mental health professionals and other resources that can help you. We make every effort to keep this list current, which means we’ll be adding more resources as we discover them.

Q:  What if I don’t know HOW to help or WHAT kind of help I need?

It’s OK if you don’t know what you need. Mental health issues are complex and can be very confusing… and you’re not expected to know everything. Start with our How Do I Find Maine Mental Health Assistance page or call the Maine Mental Health Crisis Hotline: 1-888-568-1112 and they’ll help you figure out what you need and where you can go for help.

If you need help for a loved one now, visit our Maine Crisis Overview page or get answers For a Loved One.

Words of Hope

"If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
