For people with mental health disorders, participating in social interactions and maintaining interpersonal relationships can sometimes be a difficult task. Not only can interpersonal struggles stem from a variety of mental health disorders (including anxiety, depression, personality disorders and impulse control disorders), but they can also manifest themselves in a variety of ways, including social withdrawal, feelings of isolation and an inability to accept love or maintain wholesome long-term relationships. Solara specializes in interpersonal skills training in San Diego to help any with or without mental health disorders.
Developing Social Wellness at Solara Mental Health
At our mental health treatment center we understand that strong, healthy social interactions are an important part of finding lasting relief and healing from mental health disorders. As such, our intensive program utilizes a combination of individual psychotherapy and group therapy, which is tailored to address each veteran’s symptoms and needs, including addressing interpersonal skills.
During individual therapy, our highly experienced clinicians begin by helping veterans identify their individual social struggles, discussing how those struggles have affected relationships with friends, family, and colleagues. In group therapy, veterans can further discuss their social experiences, gaining insight and perspective from the experiences of supportive peers and learning that they are not alone in their struggles. Here, veterans can practice interpersonal skills discussed in individual therapy sessions in an environment that is both understanding and safe. This allows veterans to be prepared for continued recovery even after the program is over, laying the foundation for a life full of healthy, enriching interpersonal interactions and relationships, as well as relief from painful symptoms of mental health disorders.
