Group Therapy

Group therapy is an integral part of the comprehensive mental health services offered by Connections Wellness Group. Designed to strengthen connections, support and healing, our group therapy programs provide a safe and structured environment where individuals can work through their mental health challenges together. With the rising demand for mental health services, group therapy offers an effective and efficient approach that allows participants to benefit from shared experiences and peer support, especially when combined with other treatments from our comprehensive service mix.

If you believe you or a loved one could benefit from the support of others within our group therapy, or if you are interested in learning about other services, please connect with us online here.

Benefits of Group Therapy

Group therapy offers an array of benefits if you or a loved one are looking for mental health treatment options. Key advantages of group therapy include:

  • Effectiveness: Group therapy has been shown to be as effective as individual therapy for a wide range of symptoms and conditions, including anxiety and depression. Some research suggests that group interventions can be just as beneficial as individual therapy.
  • Peer support: Group therapy participants can gain support from others who understand their struggles, which can reduce feelings of isolation and stigma. This type of solidarity is particularly powerful in marginalized communities, who may face additional challenges related to their minority status.
  • Skill development: Unlike other treatment options, group settings provide an opportunity to practice social skills, learn from others, and receive feedback in a supportive environment.
  • Perspective: Hearing others’ shared experiences and individual experiences, as well as their coping strategies, can encourage new perspectives and solutions to personal challenges.
  • Safety and structure: Though group services can at first seem intimidating to some, Connections Wellness Group places clear ground rules and aims for group cohesion to create a safe environment where members can openly share and navigate conversations effectively and comfortably.

Mental Health Conditions Treated with Group Therapy

Group therapy is an effective treatment option for a variety of mental health conditions, especially when used in mixed-methods programs. From adolescents to adults, peer groups can provide a special type of support when addressing mental health issues. Connections Wellness Group also offers specialized programs for specific populations, such as veterans, first responders and LGBTQIA+ community members that include group therapy options. 

Group therapy may be right for you or a loved one if you experience conditions that include but are not limited to:

Everyone experiences these conditions differently, therefore success in group therapy depends on each individual’s motivation and receptiveness. Being open to sharing and actively participating can greatly enhance the therapeutic experience. Establishing trust within the group is important to us, and our team is experienced in adhering to the group’s structure and facilitating interactions that are essential for creating a supportive and effective environment.
