Talking with a therapist, psychiatrist or a psychologist is one of the most common ways to begin the mental health treatment process. No matter what the issue, talk therapy is almost always a part of the treatment plan. Group psychotherapy is one of the common forms of talk therapy.
Rather than meeting one on one with a mental health treatment professional, patients meet in groups that are run by a therapist.
Through this process, patients can benefit from the guidance and assistance provided by the mental health treatment provider as well as the experiences and issues facing others in the group who struggle with similar issues.
