Behavioral Health Groups

Our groups are designed to specifically address issues we commonly see among Mizzou students. Groups consist of 1–2 counselors/facilitators and multiple students; and while some students express concerns about engaging in a group format, research shows in some areas the benefits of group therapy exceeds the benefits of individual therapy.

Groups offer you an opportunity to give and receive support from one another and to share information, ideas and problem-solving tips from multiple perspectives.

Even if an outside provider referred you to us, you can expect to meet with at least one member of our behavioral health team prior to starting any groups. This way we can answer any questions you may have beforehand.

These groups are covered by your student health fee, with exceptions noted for materials.
