Online PR News – 19-November-2021 – Manchesterm, NH – To celebrate the many success stories of participants and alumni, and commemorate its 20th anniversary, WestBridge will be holding a virtual celebration on November 30, 2021. The event will feature multiple speakers including former New Hampshire Supreme Court Chief Justice John Broderick, who is now the Senior Director of Public Affairs at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health and a mental health advocate, and Ken Norton, Executive Director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, New Hampshire.

Twenty plus years ago, the son of WestBridge’s founding family, who has a serious mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorder, was not sustaining recovery despite multiple treatment episodes. After networking with doctors and researchers, the founders established WestBridge on behalf of their son and others impacted by serious mental illness and substance use. Since then, WestBridge has helped hundreds of men and families to sustain long term recovery via a community integration model. For example, a family member of one of the WestBridge alumni expressed a sentiment shared by many: “WestBridge restored our hope for our son, and gave us hope for the improvement of the mental health care system.”? WestBridge’s independently verified treatment outcomes are also published in an international journal.

Norton notes… Using evidence based practices and looking holistically at individuals’ social, educational, vocational as well as treatment goals, WestBridge has created successful residential and outpatient programming where men find intentional communities focused on recovery and wellness.” When speaking with WestBridge, Broderick said, “What you do at WestBridge is so fundamentally important, and you are changing lives…When you help one person…you help all the people that love them. It multiplies rapidly and it makes them feel whole and accepted.”

Event proceeds will support the WestBridge Recovery Opportunity Fund, which helps men with demonstrated financial need continue their treatment at WestBridge. Find out more about this event and the WestBridge Recovery Opportunity Fund at: https://www.recoveryopportunityfund.org/
