CalMHSA: Jewish Cultural Support Group

December 29, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm UTC-7

Topics of Discussion Include:

  • Depression as a Community

How the aspects of community and family in Judaism change the way we ask for help and talk about depression. Talking through the ways mental health intersects with Jewish identity may help us move towards personal improvement and build a healthier and stronger community.

  • Battling a History of Anxiety

Battling a History of Anxiety: Our history, epigenetic, and familial pressures might be the cause of high rates of anxiety in our community, but we can work together to connect and grow internally while we build happier lives.

  • Facing Anti-Semitism in our Lives

Unfortunately the reality that we live in means that we are surrounded by ignorance and hate, and some of that is directed at us and our community. Each of us that have experienced any amount of antisemitism can have feelings of isolation, anxiety, and hopelessness as a result. Here in this group you can share your experiences safely with others that might have gone through something similar, and we will work on how to build up each other and ourselves as others try to tear us down.

  • Fighting for Identity

Knowing who you are is one of the most important questions in one’s life and knowing how your Jewish Identity fits in is a key aspect of that. People outside and within the community have opinions that impact your identity but it is still uniquely your own. Come learn about accepting your own and other’s identities to build a loving and respecting community.

  • Healing Generations Before & After

Our shared history of trauma has created ripples and wounds that we carry with us, but we have the opportunity to heal not just ourselves but the generations that came before us, while making a world that we and those that will come after us can be happy in.

  • Process Time for Individuals to Share Experiences
