As we have begun to grapple with our collective trauma from the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have realized the importance of taking care of our mental health.
But mental health awareness is nothing new. Long before mask requirements and stores closed, many of us admitted we were struggling and sought therapy and other help. Others have only recently realized that they need support, but don’t know where to start.
That’s where the LA Times’ new weekly newsletter, Group Therapy, comes in. We’re here to answer your mental health questions. For example, have you ever wondered how long you should stay with your current therapist? Or what they write down during your session? Or maybe you were curious what it would be like to join a support group. Or whether an antidepressant could help you.
We’re safer than an algorithm for asking your most pressing mental health questions, and we promise to deliver high-quality answers from top experts including psychologists, therapists, and researchers.
Send us your questions in the form below! We’ll answer them in the group therapy newsletter coming out in August. We only publish your first name and city if we select your question to answer. Your questions could help others on their mental health journey.
Group therapy is for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for professional psychological counseling, diagnosis or treatment. We encourage you to seek the advice of a mental health professional or other qualified healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns about your mental health.
