Welcome to the GROUP FOUNDATION FOR ADVANCING MENTAL HEALTH
TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE LIVES
The Group Foundation for Advancing Mental Health is a philanthropic organization dedicated to changing lives through therapeutic group work by advancing the most effective and innovative approaches to group therapy education, training, research and community outreach. Evidence is now clear that group interventions are at the forefront of treatments to heal trauma, improve individual, family, and workplace relationships, treat psychological conditions and aid the military and their families in dealing with the psychological impact of war. In short, group changes lives. With the support of our donors we advocate for and support research, education/training and community programs to assure the advancement of the most innovative group work to enhance people’s lives.
Listen to Group Foundation Chair, Karen Travis, LCSW, BCD, CGP, FAGPA, and Board member Elliot Zeisel, Ph.D., CGP, DFAGPA describe why they support the organization.
