Support Groups

University Health and Counseling Services offers a variety of groups each term in an effort to support your varying needs. We are happy to help you find the best fit for you. 

All groups provide a nonjudgmental and confidential space in which to learn as well as to receive and offer support. You’ll explore different perspectives and new ways of coping. Groups are a brave space for personal connection and personal growth. 

Below you’ll find all of our group offerings for the current semester. After submitting your interest form for whichever group/s you’re hoping to join, you will receive a call or email from the group facilitator with directives for next steps. You can indicate in your interest form if you’d like to have a conversation with the group facilitator to review the fundamentals of group and discuss any questions you may have. 


  • Groups are for CURRENT Northeastern students in Massachusetts only.
  • All groups are held at Eastern Standard Time.
