Mental Health Series
Join us for free bi-monthly presentations on a variety of mental health topics.
Mental health issues are more common than many people realize, with nearly one in five adults in the United States experiencing some form of mental illness.1 Bucks County is no exception. As the mission of Doylestown Health is to continuously improve the quality of life and proactively advocate for the health and well-being of the individuals we serve, we recognize the need to advance the topic of mental health in our community.
Doylestown Health is pleased to announce the theme for the 2019 Mental Health Series: "When Life Throws You Curveballs." Beginning January 2019 and continuing throughout the year, the free educational sessions will explore mental health challenges that present themselves at every stage of life—from childhood through older adulthood. The public is encouraged to attend these bi-monthly presentations, given by local mental health professionals and community partners, to educate themselves about local mental health resources in the community and to join the effort to remove the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Presentations are free and are held every other month in Conference Room J at Doylestown Hospital (595 W. State Street, Doylestown, PA 18901) from 4:30 to 5:30 pm. The following are this year's topics:
"We hope that this Mental Health Series informs community members on how to cope with mental health issues, whether it's for themselves or a friend or family member," said Kellye Remshifski, Doylestown Health education outreach liaison. "We want everyone to leave knowing that there are resources available in the community and feeling empowered to lessen the stigma that surrounds mental illness."
