Mental Health in Youth in our Community: What You Need to Know

  • New Hope Solebury High School Library 182 West Bridge Street New Hope, PA, 18938 United States (map)

The New Hope Solebury Cares free speaker series recognizes May as mental healthmonth. You are invited to hear from a counselor from the New Hope Solebury Guidance Department. A counselor will share important information about our teens’ mental health and how we can help them.

In the high school, the Guidance Department works closely with teachers, parents, and our principal to help our students succeed in their academic performance, career development and personal/social growth.  Our goal is to create an atmosphere of encouragement so that each student has the confidence to set goals as they prepare for their future.  The counselors are available to help in many areas such as course selection, academic difficulties, college planning, and individual counseling. 

In the middle school, the purpose of the middle school counseling program is to provide all students an opportunity to further develop their social/emotional growth, academic success and career exploration. As a school counselor I work in collaboration with administration, faculty, parents, and the community to build a scaffolding of knowledge and skills that provide high academic performance, effective decision making, and positive self esteem that will continue throughout the life span.

This speaker series is sponsored monthly by New Hope Solebury Cares. NHS Cares is a federally funded, youth-oriented, drug and alcohol prevention organization whose mission is to work together to support a safe, healthy, addiction free community. A coalition meeting will be held immediately following the featured speaker to update the community on NHSC outreach programs and identify what role you can play as a volunteer.
