Groups

Penn Foundation offers group enhancement opportunities to complement the care that it provides.

Individuals who participate in groups often feel a high level of validation because they realize that they are not alone. A group environment fosters opportunities for emotional support, compassion and understanding, and encouragement from others who are experiencing the same things you are. You have the chance to learn from other group members as well as to help your peers.

For more information about our group ehancement opportunities, please contact Jacinta Harman, Director of Mental Health Outpatient Services, at 267.404.5945 or jharman@pennfoundation.org.
