Mental Health and Mental Illness Resources

Congregation Beth El has a task force aimed at reducing the stigma of mental illness and working to ensure that our community is responsive to the needs of families and individuals who struggle to maintain mental health. Our group of volunteer psychotherapists, social workers and psychiatrists has compiled a list of local agencies that provide free or low-fee counseling, consultation and advocacy services.

We hope that this list will enable congregants and their friends to get the help appropriate to their circumstances.
