Guided Help workshops are not designed to be therapeutic treatment. Our workshops provide psycho-education on topics related to mental health to safely introduce people to the initial stages of understanding the process of self-awareness, effective communication, and active planning toward the journey of healing and growth. Our goal is get an individual to say, “Wow, I didn’t realize that about myself. That is something I really need to work on.” Or a couple to acknowledge, “I didn’t know there was a more helpful way for me to say that, I didn’t know it affected you that much”. Or a family to conclude, “I now realize we need more professional help, let’s schedule for family therapy this week.”
Let us all talk more about mental health. Let us build a genuine dialog with those we love about what we need emotionally and ask them, “how can I help?” Let us start this journey together.
