Stronger Together peer groups for youth and young adults ages 14-22
May 15, 2018
Formed Families Forward hosts Stronger Together peer-to-peer support groups.
We believe that youth and young adults really are stronger when they share their experiences and work together to improve their own lives and the systems that are supposed to help youth and families.
Our youth and young adult group is designed for teens and young adults who have lived experiences in one or more service systems such as:
- Social services (foster care, child welfare, family services)
- Special education (learning or emotional disability or other condition)
- Mental health services
- Substance use treatment/recovery
Our group youths and young adults have their own group meeting at the same time in the same building as our group for parents, caregivers and guardians.
Groups meet twice monthly in Fairfax city. Groups generally meet two Tuesdays a month and enrollment is open.

Groups are facilitated by professional clinicians. A light dinner is served before group meetings begin and there is no charge for participation. Due to the continuing nature of peer support, regular group attendance is expected.
To register for the Strong Together youth, young adult, parent and caregiver group please complete the form below. We will be in touch with consent forms and information about group meeting logistics.
