Greater MetroWest ABLE has been dedicated to raising awareness and eliminating stigma surrounding mental illness. As a vigilant advocate for our Jewish community, ABLE stands on the front lines advocating for a day when no individual or family will struggle alone. Greater MetroWest ABLE, in partnership with Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ and the Eric Eliezer Levenson Foundation for Hope, has compiled a Mental Health Resource Guide with information, guidance, and resources to help navigate the services available to those in our community.
Additional resources include:
A teen-driven movement to build connections, increase wellbeing, promote mental health awareness and engage in conversations about social pressure, physical and romantic relationships, anxiety, substance use and other relevant topics. It’s a platform for Jewish teens to meet, talk about what matters, and learn how to engage friends and peers in meaningful conversation. Participants will gain important tools and skills to increase openness and resiliency in your communities and educate others through workshops and trainings specifically focused on wellbeing and inclusion.
Youth Mental Health First Aid Certification
This training is designed for adults who interact regularly with young people ages 6-18 to learn the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to youth and adolescents in need, connecting them to the appropriate care. With the goal of supporting our Jewish community, we hope to reach a great cross-section of our Jewish community, including parents, educators, clergy, youth advisors and camp professionals. This 6-hour training can be offered in a single session or broken up into 2 sessions. If you would like to schedule a training for your community or participate in an upcoming session, contact Rebecca Wanatick at email@example.com.
