Group Counseling

Don't Face Life's Challenges Alone

This is a great time to take advantage of the unlimited counseling sessions offered in groups.

In an effort to better serve students, we are offering group counseling to DePaul students. Without compromising privacy,  students can learn more about themselves and gain support from others. All are welcome to take advantage of this opportunity regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability or ethnicity; and we are committed to providing students with the best services possible.

A variety of groups and workshops are offered at both the Lincoln Park and Loop Campuses for students who may be struggling with specific issues (e.g. grief/loss, self-esteem), or who would like to understand more about how they tend to relate to others in general. Group counseling and educational workshops can be particularly effective for a broad array of concerns. These resources not only offer students an opportunity to get support and feedback from others, but also to learn more about themselves in unique and stimulating ways.

Be on the lookout for these and other groups that will be forming throughout the school year:

This group is designed to provide a safe place to process challenges and learn new ways of coping and navigating the world.
