if this sounds like you:
Something happened recently that has you reeling, and you're unable to make sense of it
Having trouble discussing things that matter, causing problems in your relationships
Trying to find the meaning in your life that keeps you going day-to-day

Becoming confident in your masculinity through a support network of other modern men
Navigating your personal challenges in a healthy way so your relationships don't suffer
Understanding why keeping things to yourself actually ISN'T the answer and how you can become a better partner/friend/father
Becoming accountable to yourself for the changes you want to make in your life
Facilitators for our men's support group:
I'm Chris Campassi. I help men feel comfortable with your emotions and feelings, leading to more fulfilling relationships and decreased loneliness so you can live your best life.
I'm Shannon Heers. I help men like you go from feeling alone and overwhelmed to motivated and happy so you can make the most of your relationships and life.
what to expect from the men's support group:
We keep the Men's Support Group small, with up to 6 people per group. This way you get the most out of your group experience by getting a chance to participate each group. The small group size also lets you get to know and connect with the other group members better.
As the Men's Support Group is not a drop-in group there will be the same group members in your group each week. So having the same people in the group each time you meet facilitates more meaningful connections amongst members, which helps you feel less alone.
This Men's Support Group meets weekly and is ongoing. You are invited to stay in the group for as long as it's beneficial for you. We do know that you will get the most benefit from the group by committing to attending a minimum of 3 months. Although, some people stay in our groups for a year or even longer.
We work hard to maintain a positive and supportive group atmosphere for everyone in the Men's Support Group. You will be able to talk comfortably with others who understand what you're going through. Various discussion topics often include work and job challenges, relationships, parenting (if applicable to you), health, and toxic masculinity.
The Men's Support Group is an online group. The day of your group session you will be sent a link for the group session, and all you need to do to join is to click the link. We know you are busy and online groups offer the flexibility you need while cutting down on your commute time. We do ask that you please have a safe and confidential space to join the group session.
Is the Men's Support Group an Anxiety Support Group?
While not specific to anxiety, our Men's Support Group is a good fit if you are experiencing anxiety. We discuss anxiety coping skills, triggers for your anxiety, and potential causes. The group explores family dynamics, relationships, and work-related stress, among many other things.
Learning from others about what helps with your anxiety can be powerful. Understanding that there are other men out there who feel the way you do can be freeing. And sometimes, just talking things out in group actually makes you feel better!
Is the Men's Support Group a depression Support Group?
Although this Men's Support Group is not as specific as a Depression Support Group, you will get encouragement for any depression symptoms you may have. In this group we are kind to each other and accepting of whatever you are going through.
Healing often comes within relationships with others. Feeling less alone in a Men's Support Group can help with your depression. And, making those deeper connections with other men just like you can make you feel better!
Are you still Unsure about the Men's Support Group?
For sure, we know that group counseling can be hard. Groups can be intimidating! Joining a group and sharing your story with people you don't know can be anxiety-provoking! In reality, every other person who is joining the group likely is experiencing those same emotions. That is why we talk openly about our anxiety during the group session itself, as a way to promote connections between group members.
The other thing is, research shows that group counseling is as effective as individual counseling for a variety of issues, especially when you're looking to feel less alone and find a supportive community of other men. And our Men's Support Group is online, so you don't even have to worry about driving somewhere you don't know or stress about trying to find a parking spot. We believe in groups so much, we even wrote an article specifically about the benefits of men's support groups: Why Men's Support Groups are Good For, Well, Men.
You may still have some hesitations or questions about our Men's Support Group, so you can also contact us for a free 20 minute phone consultation. Our caring Scheduling Coordinator can answer any questions you have about the group and determine if this group will be the best fit for you, or if individual counseling may also be recommended.
Here at Catalyss Counseling, we love groups. We strongly believe in men supporting men opening up about your struggles instead of keeping everything inside. Some benefits of joining our Men's Support Group include not feeling so alone in your struggles, understanding how your past socialization as a male impacts your present relationships, and how to focus on your own self-care. Group therapy can be hard, but we make it easy! Give it a try today.
