Group Counseling Services and Opportunities

OUTPATIENT:  Outpatient is when someone lives on their own, but comes into the agency to receive counseling and other supports they may need from counselors, nurses, and medications.  Outpatient Services can, and often do, include supportive counseling groups.

Mental Health groups usually center around and discuss strategies for identifying emotional and situational triggers, learning coping skills, practicing mindfulness techniques, psychoeducation on cognitive distortions, and growth mindset, etc.
Substance Use Disorder groups usually include some mental health education, but prioritize growth mindset, wise-mind, trigger-identifying and relapse prevention, identifying needs to be able to better explain needs for case management assistance and where each other has found supports in our community.  The goal is to keep the conversation going for how to make sustainable life changes for the betterment of the self, of supporting loved ones, and involvement in bettering our community.
