Hingham CARES is pleased to sponsor "Wellness Wednesdays" with Linda Nathan, LICSW. Linda is a former adjustment counselor with the Scituate Public Schools. She is also a facilitator of Guiding Good Choices, the hugely-popular workshop series for parents of middle-schoolers. Hingham CARES invited Linda to present the workshops to Hingham parents in the fall of 2019 and had hoped to bring her back this year. Given the pandemic, Wellness Wednesdays is being offered as an alternative.

 

Beginning October 7th and continuing through the end of the year, Linda will provide parents and guardians with tips for talking with their teens about drugs and alcohol. These tips will be shared on the Hingham CARES Facebook page and through email. 

 

Community members who would like to be added to the email distribution list or who have questions for Linda or are looking for additional support are encouraged to reach out to Hingham CARES directly at hinghamcaresboard@gmail.com. All correspondence is kept completely confidential, and individuals' contact information is never shared with any other entity - group, business or individual.

Hingham CARES would like to thank Plymouth County Drug Abuse Task Force and DA Tim Cruz's office for the grant funding that is being used to bring this important programming to Hingham.
