WHAT IS PSYCHOEDUCATION?
When information is provided to people seeking mental health support, psychoeducation is provided. It can cover a broad range of topics revolving around psychology, behavior, disorders, communication, relationships, thought processes, and more. Psychoeducation serves as a means to understanding experiences of self and others. In a group setting, psychoeducation looks like a series of presentations, guided discussions, interactive implementation/practice, feedback, along with support and direct Q&A.
WHAT IS A SUPPORT GROUP?
A support group offers a setting for members to share personal experiences, tools, insights, and interpretations with others. With the help of an educated facilitator, group members with shared needs and goals, and specific objectives, a support group can be effective in helping members through coping strategies, interpersonal skills, accountability, validation, decreased isolation, new perspectives, and the application of strategies towards an aligned goal.
