Day Patient Services

Recovery from a mental health illness  ideally involves a combination of medication, therapy and lifestyle changes.

Why Group Therapy?

  • Medications can be viewed as the cornerstone of treatment for most mental illnesses, we acknowledge they are not sufficient in themselves to lead people to recovery - and not everyone will access medication as a viable option.
  • Attendance offers a great deal of therapy in a short space of time.  This can lead to a smoother recovery and easier transitions which promotes better outcomes.
  • Group cohesiveness, a sense of belonging and acceptance [to know that there are other people out there who are dealing with similar issues].
  • Peer support and feedback can allow mulitple perspectives and promote a better understanding around one's issues;
  • Psycho-education helps to educate and empower people with the knowledge and skills to cope better with their specific situation(s).
  • Development of social skills and interpersonal learnings.
  • Preventive measures for the onset of mental health issues.
  • Relapse prevention for those recovering from a mental illness.
  • The sharing of thoughts and feelings in a safe environment, can promote healing and personal well - being.
  • Instills a sense of hope and creates a feeling of optimism.
