Workshops and Groups

Virtual Groups & Workshops

CAMHS offers a wonderful array of virtual programs for students to promote mental wellbeing this semester. Participation in one of our many online groups or workshops provides a confidential, safe and supportive space to discuss your concerns and learn coping skills with others who may have similar challenges. Any of these programs can help you change and reach personal goals, foster stress management skills, and alleviate feelings of alienation and loneliness. The number of sessions vary in frequency depending on group format. Be sure to email the group leader to express your interest and they will get back to you.

What’s the difference in group formats?
•    Psychoeducational workshops are skills-based, typically 4-8 sessions, and are voluntary to join. Most are drop-in as needed but you will get the most benefit by attending the series (for example, the Managing Emotions or CPR for Mental Wellbeing).
•    Support groups are also drop-in and require a communication with the group facilitator to ensure the right fit (for example, the Recovery or Queer support groups).
•    Therapy groups require a referral from your CAMHS clinician and a clinical pre-screening with the group facilitator. Therapy groups typically have 6-8 members (for example, Graduate Students Support Group).

NOTE: CAMHS workshops and groups are open to Harvard undergraduate and graduate students who pay the Student Health Fee (SHF), which is required for the majority of students. If you have a question about eligibility, please call patient registration (617-495-5795).

If you are interested in a specific group, you may call (617) 495-2042 to speak with the group leader or you may book a half-hour session with the leader to discuss the group and your interest in it.
