Youth and young adults ages 14-22 are invited to to attend our weekly Stronger Together Peer Support Group, meetings on Tuesdays, January 23 through March 12, 2024. Groups meet IN PERSON in the Fairfax area. Specifics on location and logistics will be sent to those who are register.
Stronger Together group meetings are facilitated by professional clinicians. Regular attendance is expected. The group is FREE of charge to attend.
The group will focus on strengthening social engagement through conversation, and activities. The group will feature a topic each week related to issues teens and young adults often face such as mental health challenges, peer interactions, healthy relationships and boundaries, as well as other topics chosen by the group. The group will offer participants a chance to practice social skills, learn from one another, and get feedback from peers and group leaders. Group leaders will foster an environment of acceptance and members will share as much as little as they like.
