Resilience is like a muscle. We’re here to help you build it.

OptionB.Org is dedicated to helping you build resilience in the face of adversity—and giving you the tools to help your family, friends, and community build resilience too. Here, you can read and share personal stories, join groups for solidarity and support, and find information from experts.

Three ways to get involved

1

Share stories of resilience

Reading other people’s stories can inspire us. Telling our own story can help us heal. OptionB.Org offers a rich and growing collection of personal reflections from people dealing with life-changing challenges of all kinds. We hope you’ll read these stories, respond, and add your own.

Connect with people who understand

Coming together around shared experiences can be a source of strength and hope. Whether it’s losing a loved one, dealing with trauma, or facing any challenge, we want to help you find a group of people who understand what you’re going through and can offer support.
