What can I expect during a mental health group visit?

Prior to your visit, you complete extensive forms on your health journey to confirm you are a good fit for the group session.  The group visit combines two powerful specialties of functional medicine and mind-body skills training.  Functional medicine sessions discuss how mental health is affected by the gut microbiome, a hormonal imbalance, possible vitamin and mineral deficiencies, as well as past or current traumas.  The mind-body skills training includes a wide array of modalities including breath work, progressive relaxation, visual imagery, meditation movement, art, music and dance to calm the nervous system and decrease the response to stress and possible past traumas.  Dr. Patel highly recommends the group visit formats since they have been shown to be more effective in improving mental health than individual visits.
