Art in Response of COVID-19 Therapy Group
4:00pm - 5:30pm

Group Therapy and Support groups at Center on Halsted are one component of our Behavioral Health Services. We currently offer on-going therapy groups and time-limited therapy groups for individuals working on making changes in their lives. Additionally, we offer time limited support groups in both the Behavioral Health and HIV Testing and Prevention departments for individuals seeking general support. For a list of current groups, please visit our calendar. Descriptions of all of our current groups are listed below. To participate in any of our groups, interested parties will need to complete a brief registration with a group facilitator. In this registration process, you will be asked to complete a brief phone screening for support groups or an in-person registration interview for therapy groups & HIV support groups. Participation in HIV support groups is free as they are funded through a grant from the Illinois Department of Public Health. Fees for other groups vary depending on focus but range up to $15 per session (see below for fee information for specific groups). Fee negotiation may be available for those who can't afford the full amount. For general information about our groups program or inquiries about group topics not listed below, please contact us at 773.472.6469 EXT 460 or Current Offerings: ACT HIV+ Stigma Art in Response for COVID-19 Therapy Group Grief and Loss LGBTQ Black, Indigenous, + People of Color Trans, Non-Binary and Gender Non-Conforming Group Queer Body Image & Body Positivity Group Queer Women's Group ACT for HIV Stigma Thursdays · 5:00 - 6:30 pm Begins January 21 This is a therapeutic process group for individuals living with HIV to increase self-compassion and reduce feelings of shame and stigma associated with HIV/AIDS.
