I felt as if I had nowhere to go until I started attending the Jewish mental health support group at your temple. It is so wonderful to have a temple reach out to the mentally ill. Many of us are quite isolated, and as a result get lonely and despondent about our lives and condition... I am so glad that there are congregations that seek to help us. We are mostly a talented, smart, educated population who got ill in the prime of our lives. Yet we have much to give, if there are others in the community who are ready to receive. For what you are doing, opening your temple and heart to me and others with mental illness, I am extremely grateful. -- Words from a Beit R'fuah Attendee

It is important to note that specific counties provide different services so it's important, especially in time of crisis, to know what is available where you live.
