This seminar aims to examine the role that Judaism can play in the pursuit of mental wellness. Issues of Mental Health affect nearly one in four Canadians, making the concern both pressing and personal for all of us. This session will provide a brief overview of a selection of mental health concerns with an emphasis on anxiety, depression and eating disorders. Together, we will examine how Jewish values target mental wellness, and explore the connection between mental health and spirituality. Through enhanced understanding and greater appreciation of the struggle that individuals are battling with every day, we can access the tools of empathy, acceptance, and action; propelling us forward in helping to reduce the stigma around mental health and increase support for those struggling, both inside and outside of the Jewish community.
