groups

EMERGE GROUPS provide a safe environment in which you can experiment with new behaviors, improve skills, and receive feedback from others with similar concerns, experience and interests. The GROUPS at EMERGE focus on varying skills and themes. All GROUPS provide a safe space that allows members to feel less isolated as they work through challenges, discover that their struggles are shared by others, provide multiple perspectives on issues, and provide an ideal means for practicing and learning new interpersonal behaviors. Our GROUP Programs offer both help and hope. If you are a current client at EMERGE please speak to your clinician for a referral for this group. Payment for these groups can be discussed with our Client Registration Office (insurance is accepted).  

To find out more information on our GROUPS, or to register, please call our office at 800-621-5207 or visit our online registration.

    Mending Emotions Resources


    "When the teenager feels overwhelmed by negative feelings, non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) can be an effective, although harmful, strategy to stop or reduce these negative thoughts and emotions.”

    "Each year in the U.S., approximately 2 million U.S. adolescents attempt suicide, and almost 700,000 receive medical attention for their attempt (AACAP, 2001).”
