Mental Health Service: Group Psychotherapy
Group therapy offers students the chance to meet other students with similar problems, concerns or life experiences. Groups are an exciting opportunity to give and receive feedback, try out new behavior, seek connection and gain insight about how we interact with others. Group therapy and support groups can be helpful as stand-alone therapy or in conjuction with individual therapy.
Groups typically have 5-8 members and are facilitated by an experienced clinician and 1-2 trainees. All groups are confidential and free. Most groups meet once a week and require a commitment for the semester. There is no limit to how many semesters a student can attend group therapy. Groups are only available for registered University of Maryland, College Park students.
Participation in a group requires a pre-screening with one of the group leaders, to make sure that the group is a good fit for your needs. Many of the groups will 'close' after the first few weeks of the semester, so please call early!
Generally, the following groups are offered, although this may vary from semester to semester. Students interested in joining any of the groups should make an appointment by calling (301) 314-8106.
