Championing Mental Health With Jewish Family Service

Advocating for mental health requires empathy and action against hidden mental health issues.

May marks a significant time of the year dedicated to shedding light on an issue that touches many lives, yet often remains shrouded in silence. Mental Health Awareness Month encourages us all to break that silence, and co-create a culture of understanding, empathy, and support for those among us facing mental health challenges.

The Critical Need for Community Support

Mental health issues are more common than many might think, with 1 in 5 people facing such challenges. Despite its prevalence, the stigma surrounding mental health persists, making it difficult for many to seek the help they need. 

This month serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of community support, highlighting the need for open conversations and actions that can make a real difference in the lives of individuals struggling with mental health issues.

JFS MetroWest NJ: On the Front Lines

At the forefront of addressing these challenges is Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ (JFS). As a key player in the mental health field, JFS provides a range of services including counseling, consultation, and support to over 3,600 individuals. Their work is pivotal in bridging the gap for those who require assistance, offering a lifeline to many and promoting mental well-being within the community.

JFS’s commitment to serving the community extends beyond just mental health services. The organization is dedicated to providing for the social services and mental health needs of the greater community with unparalleled professionalism, humanity, and respect for all who seek its support.
