Mental Health: Our Community, Our Wellbeing!

A word from Rabbi Pinto about Mental Health:

Mental Health is not always visible and, at times, undetected. People's mental health challenges in their private and social lives can be crushing. Mental illness is factual, and the challenge is growing every year. The awareness and need for mental health and wellbeing have skyrocketed since the pandemic's beginning. Studies show that about 4 in 10 adults in America have reported anxiety or depressive disorder symptoms during the pandemic. Polls show that from July 2020, many adults report specific negative impacts on their mental health and wellbeing, such as difficulty sleeping, or eating, increases in alcohol consumption or substance use, and worsening chronic conditions, due to worry and stress over the coronavirus. 

The stigma surrounding mental health often prevents people from getting the help they need. 

We as a community must be at the forefront to assist and support those who need help with mental health and wellbeing. Mental health professionals, a loving family, a supportive community and an unwavering faith in G‑d can help a person thrive despite the challenges.

Please join me in my efforts to help our community members and friends to receive the proper treatment. You may not be a professional, but you can learn about mental health and what part you can play in helping others. 

I invite you to this first session with Dr. Elizabeth Mazza, developer of DBT for schools, on how to teach your children the essential skills for emotional problem-solving.

I hope this will be the first step towards building awareness and sensitiveness for mental health and wellbeing.
