Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Unfortunately most support groups or group therapy sessions are not advertised publicly and instead you would have to either go to your local community center or ask your psychologist to inquire about such group therapy and support group sessions. Also it will be highly unlikely that you will find a support group or group therapy session that specifically addresses Schizoid Personality Disorder since this disorder is so rare. Instead you should look for support groups and group therapy sessions that focus on treating personality disorder as a whole. Other types of groups that you could enter in would be social therapy groups as that may be of benefit to you as well.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
