Behavioral Health Clinic
Group Services

The overarching aim of all groups at the Behavioral Health Clinic (BHC) is to provide individuals with an opportunity to learn skills they can use to improve their emotional resiliency. The various groups the BHC offers are a great way to access mental health treatment while also getting an opportunity to connect with others who may have similar experiences.

BHC offers group services with a focus on education and skill building targeting issues relating to anxiety, depression, stress, and other emotional difficulties. The groups at the BHC all use approaches supported by decades of research including approaches from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

The BHC's Resilient Mind group, a collaboration with the UArizona MIND Clinic, is an educational skill-building group to improve individual’s capacity to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances.

In the Resilient Mind group, you will learn positive ways to cope with difficult emotions such as worry, sadness, anger, and stress. Group meetings will help you build self-awareness and understanding of how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are constantly interacting and influencing one another. During group meetings you will learn skills to improve emotional resiliency and have an opportunity to share and hear from others in the group.

  • Understanding Emotions & How to Respond Differently: Stress
