Personal opinions on group therapy?

I have pretty bad anxiety and i'm really starting to struggle. I made some friends at my new school and i had a lot of fun, but now it's summer and I just realized ive never even hung out with them outside of school.
Now my parents are thinking group therapy might be good for me.
Im not really sure. Opinions?

I think it depends on the context of the group and where things are at for you. I normally see a psycologist but I felt like challenging myself and went to an art therapy group class once and it only made things worse. When I told my psycologist he said I was not quite ready for something like that.

a lot depends on the group, the group leader, and what you want to get out of it. i've tried it and ended up leaving because i was singled out for not talking much (it was a social anxiety group, and i felt judged for not talking much ).
