5 Things To Know About Us
We’re a platform for change.
Strong 365 is a community of wellness warriors who believe the strength to persist and thrive through a mental health challenge exists in all of us. We’re shortening the path to effective, life-saving help for young people facing mental health challenges today — one of the most misunderstood health issues affecting our community today. By providing critical information and resources, and showcasing personal stories of finding acceptance, hope and inspiration through tough times, our dream is to redefine seeking help as a sign of strength.
We know you’re on the front lines.
1 in 5 teenagers in the U.S. experience a mental health condition. That’s 5 million teens who could benefit from some kind of support. And guess who they reach out to first? It’s not parents. It’s not doctors. It’s you. Their BFF. Their squad. We’re here to help you learn how to support a friend who is struggling.
We’ve been there, too.
We know what it’s like when a mental health condition throws you a curveball. If you’ve been there too, this is a place to stay strong by connecting with resources and a caring community.
We’re done with silence. We’re speaking up and taking action.
Mental health conditions aren’t shameful. What is a shame is that treatable conditions so often escalate into personal devastation because people feel afraid to speak up, or because the care they need is unavailable.
But times are changing. It’s the golden age of brain discovery and technology advances are changing the way we access health care. For the first time, we have a scientifically tested early treatment model for psychosis that is changing futures for young people.
You can do your part by raising a hand for yourself or a friend in need of support, and by spreading the message that getting help sooner can be a lifesaver.
