Crying Out For Help
Almost 1 in 4 adults, and 1 in 5 teens, experience a diagnosable mental illness in any given year. No one is immune from mental illness and/or addiction issues.
As Jews, we recognize that mental illness, including addiction issues, has many roots: biological, chemical, developmental, psychological, and psycho-social. No one is to blame for being mentally ill. In our prayers for healing, we pray for a רפאה שלמה, a complete healing: a healing of body and a healing of soul. Surely, all people, no matter our challenges, deserve both.
