Monthy meetings

  • We have general meetings with a presenter on relevant mental health topics  on the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00-8:30 PM.
  • We also have a support group on the third Tuesday each month for those in recovery of mental illness, or supporters of people with mental illness. This also runs at 7:00-8:30 PM.


  • The second annual NAMI Walks Grand Rapids was a success, but we’re not done yet!  The walk was on October 7, but we don’t close the books until December 7 so you can still donate.  If you want to benefit our affiliate, please choose one of the following teams: Remembering Jon SperStride With PrideTom’s Team, or any other team that has chosen to support NAMI of Kent County.
  • CIT training in Kent County is a continuing great success! Thank you to all who support us in memory of Jonathan to help save more lives through education. Our work continues, as always.
