Support Mental Health and Wellbeing

Jewish Family & Career Services launched the Be Well Atlanta initiative with an initial $500,000 matching grant from the Zalik Foundation.

The funds, secured through the Atlanta Jewish Funder Collaborative led by the Atlanta Jewish Foundation, will be used to support Jewish youth facing mental health challenges as well as those who care for them. The initiative will focus on the needs of young adults 12-26, to help them thrive through training, consulting, and mobilizing networks of care for positive youth development and overall wellbeing. This funding will provide for the hiring of two professionals and will support cross-community partnerships, helping connect the community to services while decreasing barriers. In addition, strategies will be developed to best address wait lists and increase capacity, such as expanding therapeutic models, resiliency-building programs, and payment options to better respond to community needs.
