The purpose of Silver Linings Mental Health Support Group is to provide clients with positive coping skills, the ability to recognize triggers and stressors, and development of resiliency. Our treatment approach is client-centered, strengths-focused, and trauma-informed to provide high quality mental health.
Our goal is to help clients achieve a healthier, more positive and balanced life. It will also help increase confidence needed to manage daily stressors and improve daily functioning. Communication with client’s other treatment providers is on an as-needed basis. Groups are open-ended, and length of stay is dependent upon client needs, as well as insurance coverage.
The programming provides primarily cognitive-behavioral therapy, an evidence-based treatment, and is “DBT-informed.” The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of the group members and includes symptom education and management, mindfulness, emotion regulation skills, medication education, relapse prevention, healthy relationships, communication skills, distress tolerance, pain management, critical thinking, goal setting, forgiveness, values, setting boundaries, and identifying resources. Other topics are covered as appropriate and requested by clients.
Curriculum for the Young Adult program will also include topics pertinent to that age group, including basic life skills and gender related topics.
Currently, there are two group formats, a group for Adults (age 30+) and Young Adults (ages 18-29).
Program stay is based on individual client needs. Group sessions occur twice per week and last for two hours each with a short break during the session.
Sessions for the adult group are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-3pm. The young adult group is held Mondays and Thursdays from 1-2:30pm.
