Group Services

Overcome Challenges Together

Our curriculum-based Group Services help individuals learn coping strategies to manage symptoms, maximize the ability to live independently and increase skills to effectively navigate a social environment.   Clients are invited to give and receive supportive feedback as they learn ways to overcome challenges together. Clients will also learn about community resources that can sustain their recovery after they complete the program. All client records are kept in accordance with Illinois confidentiality requirements. Below is a list of our current group offerings, some are held in person (masks required) while others remain in a virtual environment.
