Mental Health Shabbat

January 12 @ 10:30 am

Followed by brunch & a panel discussion
How can we help each other and ourselves with our mental health?
Come to our Mental Health Awareness Shabbat, Brunch and Panel Discussion. 12 January 2019
Please come to Kol Chai’s mental health Shabbat service on 12 January. After the Service, we will host a brunch, followed by a panel discussion on mental health.
We have representatives on the Panel from Harrow Samaritans, OLLIE (One Life Lost is Enough), who work around teenage suicides, and from the Harrow Citizens Mental HealthAction Team. The panellists will talk about the current issues affecting society’s mental health and what their organisations are doing. They will then take questions from the floor.
The Shabbat Service will take place from 10.30 – 11.30, the brunch from 11.30 – 12.30 and the panel discussion from 12.30 – 2pm
You are welcome to come to all or part of the event.
Saturday 12 January 2019 is mental health awareness Shabbat for the Reform Movement – a national initiative where synagogues around the UK will be putting on awareness events. It is the Shabbat where we read about the plagues of darkness which is why that date was picked.
This is just the start of the Reform Movement’s “Community that Cares” initiative on mental health and you will see several events on the subject at Kol Chai and other Reform Synagogues over the next 2 years.
Please contact Adam Baker – adambaker999@hotmail.com or Isobel Lawrence – howardpaul.lawrence@gmail.com if you would like more information.
Please e mail the Kol Chai office on admin@kolchai.org to confirm your attendance and help us to plan catering.
