Transforming the way the Jewish community understands and responds to

MENTAL ILLNESS & ADDICTIONS.

WHAT WE DO

In the Jewish community, discussions about mental illness and substance abuse tend to be rare, if they happen at all. As a result, many individuals and their families suffer in private and lack the information necessary to address their issues. The Blue Dove Foundation is working toward advancing these conversations, eradicating shame and educating the community.
