We work together for a happier, healthier Sullivan County.

Communities United is an umbrella organization made up of businesses, community support organizations, government and law enforcement, and nonprofit organizations. We are united in our commitment to work for a stronger, healthier community. We know alcohol and drug abuse hurts families and drains our communities of valuable resources.

We work together to provide information, strengthen resources, and support healthy behavior. As you explore our website, you’ll learn more about what we do, our community partners, and how you can help your family and community.

In any given year, one in four adults experiences an episode of mental illness.

That means most families are affected. It isn’t easy to understand mental illness but the more you learn about it, the more you can help a spouse, sibling, child, parent or good friend whose relationships and lives have been changed by an illness of the brain.

NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness)’s NH Chapter is offering a FREE monthly support group in Claremont on the first Thursday of each month at Valley Regional Hospital, Buckley Conference Room, for families and close friends of adults who have depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, OCD, PTSD and other emotional disorders.

NAMI support groups are led by trained family members who are volunteers. The support group offers a safe, confidential forum for family members and close friends of adults with mental illness to share coping strategies, treatments that have worked, sources of information and the empowerment that comes from being in a group where everyone understands what you are experiencing.

For more information call Pat Whitney at 603-763-5054 or Jean Fahey at 603-542-0895.
