Jewish Child & Family Services and No Shame On U is proud to provide Mental Health First Aid, a public education program that teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis. First aiders learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of mental illnesses and addictions and connect people with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Sometimes, the best first aid is you.

Let's come together in community for an evening of light, appreciation and acceptance as we celebrate Hanukkah together. All are welcome to this free event!

We will illuminate this time of darkness by lighting many menorahs together, hearing community members in recovery share the gifts they have received in their journey through sobriety, and learn together with a discussion of Jewish texts as they relate to Hanukkah and recovery.
