Group therapy can be an ideal treatment for some patients struggling with particular problems. Many groups are designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, or social anxiety disorder. Other groups focus more generally on improving social skills, strategies for healthy living, or dealing with low self-esteem. Many patients feel comforted hearing that others have struggled with similar difficulties, and often find help in hearing how others may have worked through similar problems.
We periodically offer groups throughout the year. Groups are usually composed of 5-15 patients and are run by one or more psychologists, psychiatrists or nurse practitioners. Patients wishing to participate need to be seeing an individual provider (either at the Depression Center or in the community) in addition to being seen in group.
