Group therapy is a form of therapy where individuals can experience a safe place to connect, relate, learn, and change in an interpersonal environment. Groups typically have anywhere from 5-12 members, depending on the nature and purpose of the group. Group therapy can be particularly helpful when mental health concerns interfere with relationships.
