Wellness Center Groups for Fall 2022

Wellness Center Groups for Fall 2022

In addition to individual, family, and couple’s psychotherapy sessions, the Wellness Center offers a number of group therapy sessions. For many, group therapy offers both effective treatment and the strength that comes from interacting with peers who understand and may share similar struggles. Most of our group sessions do not require students to be engaged in individual therapy, and can sometimes be the fastest route to getting the support you need.

The following is a list of new groups that are offered by the Wellness Center, Mental Health Services over the Fall 2022 semester. If you don’t see the days and times of the group you are interested in and/or if you know you would like to attend a group, please call the Wellness Center at (719) 255 4444 and let us know the group you are interested in. Once we receive your information, you will receive a reply message in your UCCS e-mail inbox with answers to your questions and we can connect you with the clinicians to welcome you into your group.
