“The Communities that Care initiative’s work on mental health is restoring the idea of community as a sacred canopy under which we can find healing and support.”

Rabbi Naomi Goldman, Kol Chai - Hatch End Jewish Community

“Working in my community, combined with my personal experience, has allowed me to see first-hand how mental health conditions are becoming increasingly prevalent at all stages of life...

Mental health is a crucial component of our quality of life for everyone and working to safeguard it has to be a top priority for building a caring community”.

Jen Jankel, Chair of Share and Care Team, North West Surrey Synagogue
