LOW-COST GROUP THERAPY FOR DEPRESSION
AVAILABLE AT UH
Millions of Americans suffer from depression, yet people often
endure its effects in isolation. Thanks to the University of Houston
Psychology Research and Services Center (PRSC), Houstonians experiencing
depression no longer have to go through it alone.
The PRSC is offering low-cost group therapy treatment through its
Depression Research Clinic (DRC). Small groups led by graduate student
therapists under the supervision of UH psychology faculty will meet
for 90-minute sessions once a week for 12 weeks.
“We have evaluated this therapy program in a number of studies
funded by federal research grants and found it to be effective.
Now, we are trying to offer it to the public at affordable rates
while training new therapists,” said Lynn P. Rehm, professor
The DRC offers a structured cognitive-behavioral group therapy
program for adults who are experiencing clinical depression. This
self-management therapy program teaches people about the nature
of depression and how to counteract different components of the
disorder. Free individual assessments conducted before, during and
after treatment are aimed at continuing to evaluate the program’s
effectiveness for each participant.
The groups are open to any interested adult. For costs, assessment
appointments and general information, please call the PRSC at 713-743-8600.
