“Whoever saves a single life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.”
– The Talmud
Hope is one of the greatest resources we have to change the culture of silence and stigma around mental health issues in the Jewish community. The Blue Dove Foundation wants to inspire people to be educated, courageous, and confident in offering hope and support to those who struggle with their mental well-being and addiction.
About the Toolkit
The Jewish Mental Wellness Toolkit is a response to continuous requests for help in the area of mental health. As a practical guide for everyday use, it offers guidance and support for transforming our culture along with practical and concrete information about mental health and wellness. Created through a Jewish lens, this Toolkit is full of resources, facts, and suggested readings. We hope it will empower all of us to turn hope into action.
If you’re interested in customizing the Toolkit for your Jewish Community or organization with local resources, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
