The Mental Health Pandemic: The Next Global Crisis

Tricia Stern, Vice President, Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services, Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies

Joan Grayson Cohen, Executive Director, Jewish Community Services (JCS)

Emily Stern, Chief Program Officer, JCC of Greater Baltimore (JCC)

Rabbi Ari Israel, Executive Director, Maryland Hillel

Since the pandemic began, anxiety and depression have soared, brought on by a lack of connection and ongoing instability. For the past two years, we have struggled with the unknown. Children, teens, and young adults feel a sense of loss as they miss out on important developmental experiences, employees are struggling at work and older adults face increased loneliness. At the same time, those already suffering from mental health challenges are struggling even more, while suicide and substance abuse are on the rise. Join us as our guests explore this growing mental health crisis and what is being done to address it.

Zoom link will be provided after registering.

For more information, contact Dr. Susanna Garfein at sgarfein@associated.org.

This series of briefings showcases the many ways The Associated network is supporting the Baltimore Jewish community. The series will highlight the strength and resilience of our centralized system of nonprofits and underscore the lifesaving and life-affirming work supported by our Annual Campaign.

In keeping with our Jewish values, The Associated supports a thriving Baltimore that celebrates diversity and appreciates the unique combination of gender, race, age, religion and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cognitive and physical disabilities and special qualities that each resident adds to the fabric of life in Baltimore. We welcome everyone interested in our mission to join us. If you require accommodations, please contact us, and we will make every effort to meet your needs.

Live-captioning is available through Maryland Relay Service. Generally, 48 hours advance notice is required to set this up.
