It’s very natural to reach out for help when you are hurting, and sharing experiences with others who are in similar situations can be very healing. However, everyone is different and you may find that a group setting is not right for you, but instead you prefer volunteering or one-on-one therapy. No matter how you choose to heal, we can help.
