40515 Support Groups and Group Therapy
Group therapy takes many forms. The groups are variously referred to (often interchangeably) as 40515 counseling groups, 40515 support groups, 40515 mutual support groups or peer support groups, self help groups, stress coping groups, workshops and mental health groups. They are moderated by a professional group counselor, group therapist or group psychologist and generally focus on a specific issue or client profile (e.g. men or women etc).

Before joining a 40515 support group, first see if the group's issue focus is consistent with your needs. If there are no groups offering support around your issue, feel free to contact these professionals in 40515 to ask for a referral to alternative groups nearby.
