The Marianna Black Library in Bryson City, in partnership with the VAYA Health, will be hosting an educational series on adult mental health, every fourth Monday of the month throughout the year. Join us in the meeting room for a free course on Hoarding Disorder: Hidden Secrets, Monday, September 25, 2023 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.

Have you ever had a secret you were too embarrassed to share? Those who hoard may not disclose symptoms due to potential embarrassment, judgment, and ridicule. This presentation will explore causes, symptoms, treatment, and care methods for those managing this condition. The focus is on the aging population.

To access the VAYA calendar to sign up for our trainings go to  or call Marianna Black Library @ 488-3030 to register.

All Geriatric and Adult Mental Health Specialty Team courses are evidence-informed, meaning they are derived from evidence-based research and incorporated into a user-friendly format focused on promoting adaptive outcomes.

The Marianna Black Library, a member of the Fontana Regional Library, is located in Downtown Bryson City at the corner of Academy and Rector.  For more information or driving directions please call the library 488-3030.
