We work across the state of Michigan
Every week, we facilitate therapeutic group sessions using interactive tools designed to enhance group members' mental health. By using a variety of tools, including crafts, games & musical activities, in conjunction with our specific expertise as social workers, we are able to create unique therapeutic environments in each session. We aim to improve our client's mental health by:
coping with the progression of their illnesses
challenging negative emotions
improving cognitive skills
improving symptoms of their illness
providing mental health education
When group members participate, that's when we see the magic happen.
At times, we hear family members or clients themselves say, "I don't think I will like this, or be good at this, or even do anything." By meeting group members where they are and remaining focused on their individual strengths, we are able to reach the positive outcomes listed above.
Our Bay City team does something a little different than the rest; they invite community members to the Tender Heart office. These special sessions involve engaging activities for the first 2/3 of the meeting, and a group member favorite, BINGO for the last 1/3, where we focus on motivation, memory-recall & cognitive skills. The group members have been gaining new coping skills, expanding their mental health knowledge & gaining new friendships along the way.
