Aepios is geared toward connecting people newly diagnosed with a condition to those who have been living with the same condition. This allows individuals to reap the benefits of group therapy from the comfort of their own homes. What are some of the benefits of group therapy?
We are living in a time where we are more connected to people all over the world while simultaneously feeling the most alone. One of the biggest advantages group therapy can provide is to make you realize that you are not alone. There are so many people going through the exact same thing you are going through. The only way to take advantage of this and take the first few steps toward recovery is to share. Talking about your experience, feelings and thoughts can help you in a multifactorial way.
First and foremost is the realization that you are not alone. There are so many people with similar stories that are facing similar circumstances as you. Sharing your story with others and talking to them can help build a support system. This can be the circle of people you turn to when you need someone to lean on. Another benefit comes in the form of helping others and indirectly helping yourself heal. Your story can serve as a resource from which others can find help and support each other. Talking to others can give you a fresh perspective on life as everyone who comes across your story will have different feedback. Ultimately group therapy like anything else in life is what you make of it. The more you share and engage the more likely you are to reap the benefits.
