In addition to individual counseling, group counseling can provide unique benefits including learning with and from peers, receiving feedback and support from peers in a counselor-facilitated setting, and learning specific skills in a group environment. The group topics and types offered evolve based on student need and current identified trends. In addition to being an effective treatment option for many presenting problems, group counseling may allow a student to receive more long-term services than would be available through individual counseling provided by MHCS.
Support groups are free, confidential, and open to currently enrolled Westchester Community College students. Currently, the Department of Mental Health and Counseling Services provides group counseling services remotely through Zoom for Health Care; click here for more information about Telehealth.
