Answer: No. Counseling or therapy is a specific type of mental health treatment facilitated by trained and licensed mental health providers.
Support groups are led by experienced and trained facilitators--to facilitate a group of peers to share their experiences, process their feelings, practice new skills, and support one another in a safe and collaborative environment. Our recovery/support groups provide a safe environment to process the ways in which the history of sexual violence impacts our life today with others who have had similar experiences. Participants will be informed about the truth of their experience, embraced where they are on the journey and encouraged in their process of recovery. NOTE: A pre-group interview is required for participation.
