Why Do We Provide Mental Health Services?
Mental illnesses are among the most severe health conditions impacting Californians. Recent studies estimate that slightly over 1.2 million adults in California have a serious mental illness, with another 1 million adults suffering moderate mental conditions. Mental illness impacts not only the person experiencing it but also their loved ones and the broader community. The effects of mental health conditions can ripple through relationships, causing strain and difficulties for family members who may struggle to provide support and care.
What is Group Therapy?
Group therapy targets specific groups of patients sharing similar symptoms and diagnoses. The sessions are led by a qualified therapist in an open environment that encourages participants to speak out and express their issues.
With group therapy, patients develop communication and socialization skills and better self-awareness by listening to and empathizing with others with similar issues. Group therapy meetings are designed to be either open or closed. Usually, new participants are free to join open sessions anytime.

We live in busy, stressful, and depressing times that take a toll on our mental health. Untreated mental health conditions make it difficult for the individual to carry out daily activities, thus causing unnecessary disability, unemployment, homelessness, and related problems. There is no shame in finding help for issues and conditions that loved ones struggle with.
Group therapy is one of the most effective treatment options one can explore when it comes to mental health issues. However, to optimize the benefits of the treatment, one must find a group that they are comfortable with.
