This group provides an opportunity for men to get together, hold each other accountable, and be authentic Men come to the group with a myriad of issues they would like to address including anger issues, relationship issues, addiction and/or mental health issues, or to simply stay grounded in their lives. Almost all of the MEN that attend find great benefit in the therapeutic environment provided in the Men's Group, along with a close knit camaraderie.

What great relief men find in being authentic. Interested individuals cam call or email  to find out when the next session begins. Available in  Cranbrook.
