Bucks County Community College to host Recovery and Mental Health Community Resource Fair


The Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) at Bucks County Community College is hosting a free Recovery and Mental Health Community Resource Fair 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, March 9.

The event will be held in the Linksz Pavilion on the Newtown Campus, 275 Swamp Road, Newtown.

During the resource fair, members of the community will be able to speak with more than 30 organizations from Bucks, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties to obtain information about resources and support pertaining to: collegiate recovery programs; substance use disorder and recovery; harm reduction; mental health; suicide; grief; eating disorders; domestic violence; and sexual health and wellness.
