Blue Dove Mental Health Bundle
In support of mental health awareness month in May, ModernTribe has teamed up with the Blue Dove Foundation to raise awareness of mental health and substance abuse in the Jewish community.
The Blue Dove Foundation’s #QuietingTheSilence platform helps individuals and organizations create programs and events focusing on mental health and substance use education, awareness and outreach through a Jewish lens.
This special mental health awareness bunch includes a MantraBand bangle engraved with the saying “TIKKUN HANEFESH - HEALTH THE SOUL” and a copy of the book, #QuietingTheSilence: Personal Stories
Nearly one in five Americans, 18 years and older, experienced a mental illness in 2018. One in five Americans older than 12 used an illicit drug, which includes misusing prescription opioids. If you are Jewish, there’s a good chance you’re thinking these statistics don’t apply to you. But they do. #QuietingTheSilence is a collection of personal stories and perspectives related to life-changing experiences involving mental illness and addiction. Through these stories of struggle and loss, we hope to show individuals that they are not alone and to work toward eliminating the shame and stigma many feel around these topics. Some of the stories may touch you directly or remind you of someone you know who has gone through a similar experience. The writers help provide insights and tips to educate people looking for some wisdom. In addition to the powerful stories, there are multiple resources for self-care, improving gratitude and joy, Jewish prayers for healing, national help hotlines, and a mental health glossary.
Wear the MantraBand to show your support for mental health and substance abuse and begin to eradicate the shame and stigma in the Jewish community and beyond. One size fits most.
