Group therapy has found to be effective for depression in helping reduce depressive symptoms and improving overall health. These positive outcomes were found to be sustained even after a 3 months later follow up.
Depression can be a very isolating condition, thus, group therapy provides a platform for re-engaging and relating to other people facing similar issues, helping the individuals reduce their sense of isolation and loneliness. In addition, it offers support, acceptance, different perspectives, comfort as well as the therapist’s expertise in helping members identify and change their negative patterns of thinking and behaving that contribute to depression.
Although we cannot give you a precise cost, group therapy sessions are usually much cheaper than individual therapy sessions.
