Winner of an NJHSA 2019 Pillar of Excellence Award for Best Practices, JFS Houston’s comprehensive mental health program has been implemented to combat deaths by suicide and substance misuse in the Jewish community and provide aftercare for those who remain after a related death. The goals of the program are to:
- increase awareness and decrease stigma
- provide support to those suffering and those effected by mental illness
- develop a conversation in the community about mental illness
- decrease suicide in the Houston Jewish community and
- promote and train the community in Mental Health First Aid.
Join JFS Houston as they share strategy, programming initiatives and outcome measurements.
