Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What's shared in the group should stay in the group. Your peer group leader and other participants will also agree to keep sensitive information confidential.</p><p>If You are Going Through a Tough Time: Members are welcome to express how they feel and inquire about local mental health services.
