Adolescent Support Groups in Rhode Island
Adolescents in the 12-17 age range are experiencing higher levels of anxiety and depression, in addition to peer pressure and low self-esteem. Group counseling and support groups with trained psychologists and therapists can help address these tough topics. In Rhode Island, adolescent support groups can cost $30 - $40 per session, and some accept health insurances.
Support groups typically meet for an hour a week, and the size of the group can vary; groups can be as small as 3-4 people, or larger, containing around 15 people. Groups take place throughout Rhode island, with many concentrated in Providence. Support groups may be especially beneficial when transitioning from middle school to high school due to the drastic changes that occur in one's life during adolescence and teenage years. Along with the pressures of social media, adolescence is a time of significant physical, emotional, and social changes, and group therapy can offer peer support and professional guidance.
The following therapy groups in Rhode Island address topics such as self-esteem, peer relationships, identity development, and family conflict, and are specifically geared towards adolescents.
