New Group for Depression and Bipolar Support at Psych Choices!

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.

Some of the topics that can be discussed include but are not limited to:
  • What is depression?  What is bipolar disorder?  How are they similar and different?
  • Living beyond stigma
  • Changing your thoughts changes your mood
  • Predromal, Syndromal, and Postdromal symptoms
  • Dealing with family, friends, and career
  • Coping with suicidal thoughts
  • What is a mood chart?
The group is run by Nate Prentice, MSW, LCSW, CAS-PC Student (, a licensed clinical social worker and a psychotherapist who has successfully helped people who deal with this create a new life for over 22 years.
Time to come out from the darkness.  Time to come out from the blinding light.  Time to move into a place where you are content with a healthy, productive, and supported life.
Group therapy is usually covered by your insurance, or call to find out about our sliding scale fees.  Speak with your therapist or medication provider if you are interested.
