Before the new year hits, people begin thinking about what their New Year resolution might be. Often times, our goals are lofty and/or solitary—we want to make big changes quickly and alone. The best way to reach your goals is to be in community with others, making consistent and daily small changes that last. Mindfulness and the support of others are essential to our success.

What You Need to Know About Mental Health Support Groups

“When you face a problem in life, the first people to whom you turn are often friends and family members. But sometimes people in your life may struggle to relate, or they might be more focused on giving advice than hearing what you have to say. So often it can prove beneficial to sit and talk with other people who are dealing with the same kinds of issues. These issues might include addiction, medical problems, family problems, or other life situations. Together, group members support and strengthen each other as they learn to problem-solve and cope with life’s challenges.”
