I can’t say enough about the importance of support systems in our lives. Whether your are a new mother and connecting with other new moms online, parenting a child diagnosed with a disability seeking resources, or on the road to recovering from addiction and attending regular support groups, connecting with others is vital to your success in overcoming the challenges of your circumstance.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jami Edwards last week at Kingwood Pines Hospital for a continuing education hour on nutrition and mental health, who works with DBSA, Depression and Bipoar Support Alliance. This organization offers free support groups in and around the Houston, Texas area.
She provided me this list (below) of Open Support Groups for individuals and families dealing with Depression and Bipolar Disorder. I encourage you the check their website regularly for an updated list as well.
Depression and Bipolar Support Groups Houston, Texas area.
Given that I live and work in the Houston, Texas area, I would love to hear if you have resources and information on support groups in mental and behavioral health. Please feel free to pass along!
I am very excited to share a link to my very first “guest blog post,” Top 5 Questions About Play Therapy Answered, on HoustonLPC.com! This is a quickly growing site for both mental health professionals and individuals seeking professional counseling services in the Houston, Texas and surrounding areas. HoustonLPC was founded by David Bueno Martin, an innovative counselor who brings energy and enthusiasm to the professional counseling arena. He has a vision for the Houston area to provide relevant and important information for persons seeking counseling services and to unite professionals to collaborate for continuing education, work association and referrals. The site contains up-to-date counselor bios with their specialties listed for persons to consider interviewing when seeking professional counseling services. David also has a private practice in Katy, Texas, and you can find more information about Martin Counseling on his website.
Visit the website if you are:
1) seeking reliable counseling services
2) a professional counselor and would like to be considered for a listing
3) an intern looking for supervision
4) interested in posting a job opening for a professional counselor
I look forward to future collaboration with Mr. Martin and appreciate the opportunity to share my passion for play therapy with his audience!
