Strength of Us - Youth Transition Community
StrengthofUs is an online community designed to empower young adults through resource sharing and peer support and to build connections for those navigating the unique challenges and opportunities in the transition-age years.
StrengthofUs provides opportunities for you to connect with your peers and offer support, encouragement and advice and share your real world experiences, personal stories, creativity, resources and ultimately, a little bit of your wonderful and unique self. It is a user-generated and user-driven community; so basically it's whatever you make it.
Everything here has been developed and created by and for young adults with you specifically in mind...because we think you're worth it! We hope every time you visit, you find hope, encouragement, support and most of all, the strength to live your dreams and goals.
StrengthofUs was developed by NAMI in close consultation with a young adult expert advisory group of more than 200 transition-age young adults who shared their feedback, thoughts and expertise for the project by completing NAMI National's survey on their social networking habits, resource preferences and what they wanted included in an online community. The national survey report served as the blueprint for the development of StrengthofUs.
