Tackling Mental Illness HEAD ON

Classes & Courses

Join JW3 together with Jami, the mental health service for the community for a panel discussion to mark Head On, The Mental Health Awareness Shabbat. The panel will discuss key life transitions and the impact these can have on mental health, before opening up the discussion to a Q&A with the audience.

Topics covered will include:

1. Starting a new school, starting university or moving cities can be a source of personal growth and development, but can also have negative effects on wellbeing. What can we do to help mitigate the negatives?

2. Does being part of the Jewish Community provide additional support for key transitions or exacerbate the psychological effects?

3. Should we support ourselves and our loved ones in fulfilling our communal social norms of Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Weddings, Retirement etc or actively encourage the carving out of alternative life paths?

On the panel will be: Laurie Rackind, Chief Executive of Jami; Nathan Servi from Streetwise, delivering wellbeing activities in 40 Jewish primary schools; Abbie Mitchell – Mental Health Campaigner and Peer Mentoring Manager at Fitzrovia Youth in Action; Rebecca Corney –  Counselling Psychologist and member of Jami Clinical Governance group; Rabbi Rebecca Birk, Finchley'a progressive Synagogue and  the panel will be chaired by Paul Stein, Director of Fundraising at research charity MQ: Transforming Mental Health.
