  • The doors are locked but there is usually someone to let you in a little before 6:30. Often times a member volunteers to stay briefly for latecomers. After that, call (608)[masked] or if that doesn't work (608)[masked], for the code to get in.
  • NAMI Bipolar/Depression Group: For people living with bipolar and/or depression. We also talk about anxiety, borderline personality disorder, other mental illnesses and various problems we are dealing with. 

    “Anderson Center” / United Way Building 

    2059 Atwood Avenue 

    Madison, WI 53704

    Facilitated by Steve and myself (Anna).

    Meetings are from 6:30PM - 8:00PM every Monday at the United Way building. Most nights we stay later to continue talking and allow some time to check out/return books at the amazing NAMI library.

    We usually starts around at 6:30PM. I would not recommend coming too early as the doors are locked after 5. As it gets closer to the start of the meeting, one of our members will be there to let you in. We often have volunteers who stay a few minutes after 6:30 to let in latecomers. After that you may call the phone number I have listed for the room we are meeting in on that date and someone will come down to let you in. 

    Lately, we have been splitting into 2 groups due to the volume of attendees. We don't want anyone to feel anxious being in a big group. We will always have a meeting on the 2nd floor right off the elevator. The phone number for that room is (608) 246-4392. Usually, the other group will meet on the third floor in the furthest conference room sectional. The phone number for that room is (608) 246-4398.


    Here are the room assignments, locations, and phone numbers to call if you are late:

    American Family Insurance: 2nd Floor in the corner off the lobby **(608)[masked]**

    Frautschi: 3rd floor in the corner off the lobby **(608)[masked]**
