Free addiction prevention and recovery series continues in New Hope area

New Hope Solebury Cares, a nonprofit organization based in New Hope, is working collaboratively with area residents and community leaders to build a safe, healthy and addiction-free community.

Last month, the organization launched a free monthly seminar series open to community members of all ages.

“We know that people have a lot of questions and are looking for guidance and support. We are fortunate that Bucks County is full of expert people and organizations who are passionate and willing to generously share their time and knowledge. This series will share information about addiction and associated mental illness, offer tools and resources and strengthen community collaborations,” said Andrea de la Flor, executive director of New Hope Solebury Cares.

This month’s seminar takes place 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12 in McArthur Hall at Trinity Episcopal Solebury at 6587 Upper York Road, New Hope. Presenters from the National Alliance on Mental Illness will offer their program, “Ending the Silence Surrounding Mental Illness.” The program aims to end the stigma surrounding mental illness and teach participants the warning signs, statistics, and how to support friends and family.

Future seminars in the series will take place on Jan. 17, Feb. 13, March 20, April 18, May 15 and June 13 at Trinity Episcopal Solebury, which has provided free space for the seminar series. Registration is not required.
