Celebrating Pride Month

Happy Pride Month! Pride Month presents the opportunity to celebrate and embrace our differences, in addition to growing as a diverse and inclusive community. Whether you identify as LGBTQ+ or not, you are a part of the dynamic AGPA family of mental health specialists and supporters. AGPA is always here to help you broaden your perspective, knowledge, and skills with essential group psychotherapy education and training that saves lives and sustains communities. Read AGPA's Public Statement Affirming Gender Identity, developed by the AGPA Community Outreach Task Force in collaboration with the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force.  And check out these podcast episodes regarding gender identity and dysphoria from AGPA Community Outreach Task Force Co-Chair Suzanne Phillips, Psy.D., ABPP, CGP, FAGPA:

Engage with the work the Group Foundation funds and supports.

The communities in which we live, and work are facing a mental health crisis in which there is great need for services and a shortage of providers. Evidence is now clear that group interventions are at the forefront of treatments to heal trauma, improve individual, family, and workplace relationships, and address a variety of mental health conditions. The effectiveness and efficiency of group therapy means it can play a key role in any solution to the crisis.  The Group Foundation is dedicated to education, training, research, and community programs that assure the advancement of the most innovative group work that can enhance people’s lives. 

Please make a gift to the Group Foundation before June 30th.  All that we do is focused on our common goal of addressing the crisis of mental health needs through the use of the powerful modality that is group therapy.  Mental health is essential, and group can help.
