As of October 2020\, youth and young adults ages 14-22 meet in person in Fairfax at FFF offices. \nAll participants should register at https://strongertogether20-21.eventbrite.com. \nLog in information will be sent to registered participants prior to each meeting. \nFormed Families Forward hosts Stronger Together\, peer support groups for teens and young adults ages 14-22\, and for parents and caregivers.  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 exist to help youth and families.   \nOur youth and young adult group is designed for teens and young adults age 14-22 who have lived experiences in one or more service systems such as: \n\nSocial Services (foster care\, child welfare\, family services)\nSpecial education (learning or emotional disability or other condition)\nMental health services\nSubstance use treatment and recovery\n\nParents and caregivers have their own group meeting. The parent/caregiver group is open to all parents and caregivers who seek peer support\, regardless if they have a child in the youth/young adult peer group. \nAs of October 2020\, groups will twice monthly VIRTUALLY and enrollment is open. Groups are facilitated by professional clinicians. There is NO CHARGE for participation in Stronger Together groups.  Due to the continuing nature of peer support\, regular group attendance is expected.   \nThe group will meet on the following Tuesdays:  \n2020- Oct 6\, 20\, Nov 3\, 17\, Dec 1\, 15 \n2021- Jan 5\, 19\, Feb 2\, 16\, Mar 2\, 16\, April 6\, 20\, May 4\, 18 URL:https://formedfamiliesforward.org/event/stronger-together-peer-support-groups-meet-2020-12-01/ CATEGORIES:Formed Families Forward event,Kinship,Youth and Young Adults ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:https://formedfamiliesforward.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Stronger-Together-Graphic-sm.png END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
