Do you feel like your mental health struggles have held you back from developing the kinds of relationships that you would want with others? Has it felt as if as you deal with your mental health, your social skills have atrophied? These are common concerns. When your mental health is perhaps not where you want it to be, it can be difficult to communicate with others openly, to be social, and so forth. At Revive, we can help. Our group counseling program in Los Angeles has a wide range of benefits for those seeking mental health treatment.
Learn and Grow With Others
When you’re dealing with your own mental health struggles, it’s natural to feel isolated and alone. It can feel as if you’re the only person dealing with these particular concerns. However, that’s not the case. When you’re in a properly-run group session, you can see that there are others who have the same struggles you do. You can learn from them while, in turn, they can learn from you. Thus, you can share in the challenges as well as the triumphs together.
Find Your Voice
Many whose mental health may not be where they want it to be can find it difficult to “speak up” to let their feelings be known, in many facets of their lives. A group counseling session can be a genuinely neutral, safe place to learn how to speak up, to speak for yourself, and to find exactly what your voice can be. By discovering how to clearly and effectively communicate exactly what you’re feeling, you can be empowered, building your confidence to take on the challenges ahead.
Develop and/or Re-Learn Social Skills
When we’re mired in our own mental health issues, it can be hard to reach out to other people, to connect with them. Many use group counseling, in part as a kind of “sounding board,” a way to strengthen social skills that may have withered a bit or to build ones that you never knew you had before. So much of what we do here at Revive is to help our clients to discover their inner strengths, their inner abilities. Through these group counseling sessions, so many have found that they have always had what they need to be able to establish and maintain healthy, rewarding relationships with their peers.
More Than Just a Group Counseling Program in Los Angeles
Group counseling is incorporated into many of the treatment plans here at Revive. That said, every treatment plan here at Revive is different. That’s because each treatment plan is uniquely tailored to the individual, to their specific needs. Through this process, every client gets exactly what they need out of the program here. Reaching out to an outpatient treatment program for your mental health can feel scary, but we can tell you that it can ultimately be very rewarding.
