The Samaritan Center has been saving lives, healing emotional wounds and giving hope to individuals and families for over 40 years. The Center’s mission is to improve the mental, physical, and spiritual health of children and families in Central Texas.
We provide professional counseling, integrative medicine, and psychiatric services that are accessible and affordable for all, especially vulnerable populations such as uninsured or underinsured low-income families, and veterans struggling with the emotional wounds of war.
The Samaritan Center also partners with the Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) to provide additional support for our veterans and their families.
This group will emphasize interaction and support and various DBT skills to help manage moods and decrease self-destructive behaviors. DBT is a research-based, proven treatment that includes four sets of behavioral skills to learn healthy coping to deal with overwhelming emotions, practice Mindfulness, and improve relationships by maintaining self-respect and showing respect with others in interpersonal interactions.
The group is for adolescent boys and girls ages 13-17. It will be held from 6-7:30pm and will run for eight weeks at the Samaritan Center in Austin from March 29 to May 7. Group size will be limited to 6-8 members.
Cost of the group is $50. Sliding scale is available to low income and to family members of veterans and active duty members.
