M. Sylvie

“Plymouth Psyche Group’s psychiatrist and team of therapists are experienced, insightful, knowledgeable, and caring. We couldn’t ask for a better environment for our daughter. They’ve proved several times over that they know what they’re doing. And although we are hyperviligant with our daughter’s care needs, we’ve learned to trust them implicitly to do what they do best. I recommend them a thousand times over.”


Leslie B.

“Our family has had a very positive experience with Plymouth Psych Group and it’s staff. The therapists are enthusiastic and caring. Our teen has skills now that will serve her for the rest of her life. Dedicated team!”


Ecogodess B

“I had a mental health crisis over a weekend and was treated poorly by ER staff at two different hospitals and told to contact a primary care provider on Monday. My family called several places and no one would see me. When they called here the receptionist listened to our whole story and got me an appt within 3 hours. I saw Gerard and he was wonderful, respectful, and honest. He came up with a plan for me for immediate relief of my situation as well as follow-up plan. Thank you so much to this clinic. Our mental health care and medical system is so dysfunctional and without compassion, but here I found hope and compassion. Thank you, I am grateful.”


Rachel M.

“This is an excellent Psychiatry Clinic. Without getting too personal, I will say that I have gotten the help I really needed due to the professional, skilled, and attentive staff. My provider really listens to me and I feel that he cares about his patient’s well-being. I have recommended several friends and family members to my provider and they have had excellent experiences as well. The specific psychiatrist I see is Gerard Balan Jr. I highly recommend him because he listens to his patient’s concerns and makes his assessments and adjustments with absolutely excellent professional skill, while being kind-hearted and friendly.”


Kathy A.

“This has been one of the best choices I have made for my mental health. This group goes above and beyond in caring and reaching out to work with each individual. They actually care about each person seen which is evident by the follow up and calls I received when switching my medications. They went above and beyond to help me have my insurance pay for what I needed with multiple letters and phone calls that had to be written to get my insurance to cover my name brand medication. And with a attitude of caring and respect towards me. This is the old fashion care that our grandparents received . I highly recommend this group”


Specialty Groups for Autism Testimonials

“Our son has grown in a lot of ways since you starting the program. It has not always been easy but we are so proud of his progress and the care the PPG team has provided. Our son is now able to talk and communicate much easier with us and is a lot of fun to be around. We look forward to continuing to work on the skills that we have all learned during the program. Thank you PPG”

“This group has been a godsend and I am interested in more groups and therapy for my child and family!”


“[Our son] has started to feel more comfortable about sharing his feelings with the family. [He] has been better when understanding his parents’ feelings. While hard for [him] at times, he has been getting better with doing things when asked. [He] shares his feelings by typing them and sending them to use and really takes his time when doing so. [He] wants to show more from himself by giving back to others, work to earn money and better himself in many ways.”


“We are very grateful to have had this opportunity. Thank you for all that you do!”


“I appreciate the Wednesday updates and handouts. My teen was willing to talk about what she was learning in group and was consistently eager to attend. We have emphasized the tools and skills learning when we talk during struggling times. Thanks so much for the skills training you did on Wednesday with me and the other parents!”


“I’ve definitely improved, but there is definitely still work to do. The staff were incredible. I would honestly love to keep coming back.” (Teen testimonial)


“We are very happy with our experience. The staff showed genuine interest in the individuals as well as the group. Parent meetings were helpful and allowed us to support our son. Great job!”


“I think that (our son) has grown and with the skills provided and us as teachers to help continue to foster the skills they have received, he will keep growing. Great program, great staff. Thank you for everything!”


“I think the program was very helpful. Only suggestion is maybe more support time for parents. We had a lot of concerns somedays and time was limited. Thank you for a great experience.”

“This program has been a great benefit for our family. THANK YOU!”

The very best part of the group was for [our son] to have people he fit in with. [He] was reluctant to come in the beginning. The reluctance went away quickly and was replaced with desire, and later sadness when the group ended.”


V.K. – Parent

“I think this (program) has helped us a great deal.”


T.W. – Parent

“I think T. showed great improvement in both his emotional regulation and improved social skills, but especially the former. His anxiety has been a major roadblock for making friends, but he is definitely better prepared to tackle that difficult task in the future. The program was well-structured and the instructors were able to adapt to the dynamic of the group. T. even commented on how this group was perfect timing for his situation, and I agree. It was truly beneficial.”

Christine W.

“The Social and Emotional Development program is excellent. Donna and her team provide programming that is engaging, educational, and inspiring. The team is truly invested in participants’ experiences and this is evident throughout the process as well as in the outcomes.”


Amelia G.

“Dr. Sokeye & the ASD Skills group has changed my sons entire life. My son is now a thriving teenager, playing high school hockey, baseball, & soccer. His IEP has also changed to better fit his educational needs, as he is excelling in all mainstream HS classes. Best of all he has friends, & is maintaining social relationships, as well as my non-ASD child in the same grade. Our family is very happy & so grateful! PPG is above & beyond any of the other mental health facilities in the twin cities; & we’ve been through them all.”
