What makes a peer support group truly effective and successful is when participants show—by example—how to be honest, empathetic, and compassionate towards one another. And a strong, confident facilitator is crucial to how successfully group participants acquire these qualities. Groups can act as an important network where members help each other with support, friendship, and accountability.
Group therapy sessions are led by one of our therapists who guide group members with strategies for managing issues and problems. The group therapy environment provides a safe and confidential space to work through common issues and to encourage each other who face similar difficulties. We take great care in connecting our clients to the right group knowing that successful outcomes can include increased self-esteem, confidence, positive feelings of accomplishment, and an increase in their own ability to cope with their challenges.
Types of Groups
Womens Health & Wellness Group
Our peer support group for young girls and women with the lived experience of mental illness, trauma and/or abuse. Several times each month, these individuals come together, with a trained peer support specialist or facilitator, to talk with one another about their experiences, struggles and challenges. The support group becomes an anchor for them as they recover from their illnesses and develop skills to live more effectively in their communities. A peer support group is a freeing experience, as these individuals realize “I am not alone,” and hope and trust grow between them.
