Counseling & Support Groups
Individual, family, and group counseling are available both in the shelters and in community offices in every borough. In addition to counseling, case managers provide assistance with finding shelter, food, transportation and other practical needs. They work with victims of domestic violence to assist them in planning for a safe future for themselves and their children.
Counseling Center: Mental Health Treatment
Since 1988, Safe Horizon’s Counseling Center, a New York State-licensed mental health clinic, has specialized in meeting the complex needs of individuals and their families who have been victims of crime and abuse. Our philosophy is one that supports and encourages the active participation of our clients in the course, scope, and pace of their treatment. This helps clients regain the sense of control over their lives that is often lost due to the trauma they experienced.
Although everybody grieves and experiences emotional pain in very individual ways, when we come together to share our experiences, we see that there are many similarities too. Support groups can help you find strength and support in those similarities.
Safe Horizon offers support groups for women coping with the trauma of domestic violence, for people who lost a family member to homicide, for incest survivors, for victims of child abuse and their non-offending parents, for rape and sexual assault victims, as well as others.
