Seminar set on adolescent gambling prevention

While low levels of gambling may seem safe, childhood gambling increases the risk of developing a problem in adulthood.

Also, teens who gamble are at a greater risk of other harmful behaviors such as substance use, depression, and anxiety.

“It’s a Big Deal: Adolescent Problem Gambling,” from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17, is the third in a series of free monthly seminars coordinated by New Hope Solebury Cares.

Adrienne Madnick of the Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia will discuss the early signs and symptoms of gambling addiction, tips for monitoring youth behavior, how to talk to your child about gambling and ways to support a loved one.

The series is a collaboration between NHSC, Trinity Episcopal Solebury and various Bucks County experts. The public is invited to spread the word and attend the Jan. 17 seminar to be held in McArthur Hall at Trinity Episcopal Solebury, 6587 Upper York Road.

Upcoming seminars are on Feb. 13, March 20, April 18, May 15 and June 13. For information about the seminar series or NHSC, visit or Facebook at NHS Cares.
