Fostering Safer Communities.

Empowering Parents and Youth Through Prevention Events and Programs

Prevention events and programs for parents and youth.

Building Stronger Futures.

Building stronger futures hinges upon the proactive implementation of substance prevention programs tailored for both adults and youth. These programs play a pivotal role in equipping individuals with the knowledge, skills, and support networks necessary to make informed decisions and resist the allure of substance abuse. By fostering open communication, imparting coping mechanisms, and promoting a sense of belonging within the community, these initiatives lay the foundation for informed decisions.

Dr. Peggy DeLong is a psychologist, known as The Gratitude Psychologist. She teaches people how to harness the power of gratitude and joy to live their best lives, especially through difficult times. She does this through psychotherapy, her on-line monthly membership Feeling Good with Dr. Peggy, on-line courses, speaking engagements and programs for colleges, books, and bracelets.

Peggy grew up in Bernardsville, where her family of origin resided for 30 years. She currently lives in Long Valley, where she also runs her private practice.
