Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Fortunately, it is also treatable. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease your ability to function at work and at home.

Depression symptoms can vary from mild to severe and can include:

  • Feeling sad or having a depressed mood

Psychosis can occur in a number of mental illnesses, including drug-induced psychosis, schizophrenia and mood disorders.

Adult Mental Health

Mental illness is a general term for a group of illnesses that may include symptoms that can affect a person’s thinking, perceptions, mood or behaviour. Mental illness can make it difficult for someone to cope with work, relationships and other demands. The relationship between stress and mental illness is complex, but it is known that stress can worsen an episode of mental illness. Most people can manage their mental illness with medication, counselling or both.


What is Couples Therapy?

Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which a therapist with clinical experience working with couples, most often a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), helps two people involved in a romantic relationship gain insight into their relationship, resolve conflict and improve relationship satisfaction utilizing a variety of therapeutic interventions. Although the practice of couples therapy may vary depending on the therapist’s theoretical orientation, all couples therapy tends to involve the following general elements:

  1. A focus on a specific problem (i.e. sexual difficulties, Internet addiction, jealousy)
  2. Active participation on the part of the therapist in treating the relationship itself, rather than each individual separately.
  3. Solution-focused, change-oriented interventions early on in treatment.
  4. A clear establishment of treatment objectives.
Family conflict
Family conflict refers to active opposition between family members. Because of the nature of family relationships, it can take a wide variety of forms, including verbal, physical, sexual, financial, or psychological.
What are some symptoms of family issues?
  • Anxiety or worry: You may be frequently preoccupied with concerns about your family and struggle to focus on other things.
  • Sadness or depression: Feelings of tension, conflict, or disconnection from your family might make you feel sad or hopeless.

In families where there is a high level of conflict and animosity between parents, children are at a greater risk of developing emotional, social and behavioural problems, as well as difficulties with concentration and educational achievement.

What is the purpose of group psychotherapy?
Group Therapy
Group therapy helps individuals develop communication skills and socialization skills, and allows clients to learn how to express their issues and accept criticism from others. Group therapy allows individuals to develop self-awareness by listening to others with similar issues.

A Typical Group Therapy Session

Group therapy is usually led by one or two therapists trained to lead therapeutic groups. Group sizes can range from six to twelve members. While groups may be small or large, the group process may be less effective in much larger groups.

A session might begin with members of the group introducing themselves and sharing why they are in group therapy. Members might also share their experiences and progress since the last meeting. The precise manner in which the session is conducted depends largely on the goals of the group and the therapist’s style.
