Where do men turn today to get help and support for their struggles with feelings, relationships, stress, and other problems? Studies suggest that a majority of men struggle in silence. They may be socially isolated, their marital and other relationship problems may result in an inability to talk things over, and a combination of fear and shame inhibit them from reaching out to others. This group will focus on a variety of men's issues including Fathers and Fatherhood; Sex and Sexuality; Money, Work, and Career; Integrity and Purpose; Health and Well-being; and Emotions and Communication, especially among the members within the group.
Every Tuesday at 9:00 AM. Ongoing.
$140 per month (4 sessions per month).
Initial interview required ($130) to determine goals and suitability.
Please note: Participants cannot use their health insurance for this group.
