New Therapy Groups for Depression and Bipolar Disorder Forming
Feeling low all the time? Unable to find joy in life? Difficult to get out of the house?
Having too much joy to the point that it interferes with your life? Can’t sleep?
Has mania or depression caused you to lose the confidence of family or friends?
Psych Choices is putting together a daytime (and eventually a nighttime) psychotherapy group for people who deal with depression and bipolar disorder to provide support, peer education, and direction for moving from suffering with these issues to living with them.
Group therapy is helpful for people who deal with depression and bipolar disorder because it provides a supportive, non-judgmental, and informative atmosphere where one can make change. Insights from people going through the same thing and a trained and experienced psychotherapist can help you get better.
The daytime group will meet weekly at Psych Choices (5060 State Rd, 2nd Floor, Drexel Hill, PA) from 11:30a to 12:30p or 1:00p (depending on group size) on Thursdays, starting April 5, 2012. The evening group is currently being set up, and most likely will be Mondays from 7:30-8:30p or 9p (depending on group size). There will be a delay until the evening group is set up.
