The Group Foundation for Advancing Mental Health is a philanthropic organization dedicated to changing lives through therapeutic group work by advancing the most effective and innovative approaches to group therapy education, training, research and community outreach.   Evidence is now clear that group interventions are at the forefront of treatments to heal trauma, improve individual, family, and workplace relationships, treat psychological conditions and aid the military and their families in dealing with the psychological impact of war. In short, group changes lives. With the support of our donors we advocate for and support research, education/training and community programs to assure the advancement of the most innovative group work to enhance people’s lives.

Do You Believe in the Power of Group? Consider a Gift to the Group Foundation.

If we could make our dreams a reality, every mental health professional would be trained to do group treatment, professionals and the public would see the value of group therapy as a way for people to learn interpersonally, communicate in healthy ways, and heal the ruptures and traumas that so many have in their lives and address social justice issues. We would make an impact in the world through the power of group.

With your support, the Group Foundation is working every day to create this reality:
  -  Resources for group therapists to transition to teletherapy and understand unique mental health needs during pandemic and times of social upheaval
  -  Support to local communities, including trainings and support groups for frontline caregivers in systems such as hospitals, public health systems and college counseling centers
  -  The e-communities forum to support each other emotionally and through sharing of information in troubling times
  -  176 students, new professionals and agency staff received valuable experiential training that they are now using in their communities
