Interpersonal Group- New Members Welcome Anytime!

Are you looking for personal growth this semester? Join the interpersonal group! Group is similar to individual counseling, except it includes other SVSU students. During group therapy, people begin to see that they are not alone. Many people feel they are unique because of their problems, and it is encouraging to hear that other people have similar difficulties. In the climate of trust provided by the group, people feel free to care about and help each other.  

Common concerns and reasons for attending group:

Depression, anxiety, social anxiety, relationship issues, identity exploration and discovery, personal growth, homesickness, lonlieness, and much more!

If you have questions about the group process, want to see if it is right for you, or want to sign up, contact Anne Acker at 989-964-4917 or by email at amacker@svsu.edu

Dates & Times:

Tuesdays 4-5:30pm   2/1/16-4/19/16

QPR Trainings

QPR (Question. Persuade. Refer.) is a training for faculty, staff, and students in how to talk to someone who is experiencing mental distress or suicidal thoughts.  You will be trained in identying risk factors, suicide warning signs, how to ask about suicide, persuade some towards hope, and how to refer them to appropriate help and resources.  QPR is not counseling or treatment. It is a way to offer hope through positive action and knowledge. If you have a group or department who are interested in receiving the free training, please contact Jenny Stephens, the suicide prevention grant coordinator, at 989.964-7078 or jmstephe@svsu.edu
