YOUNG ADULTS CENTER
Once considered a problem restricted to secular societies, divorce is now quite prevalent within the Orthodox community. Children, especially adolescents/young teens, caught up in divorce and other challenges, often suffer mental health consequences such as distress, anger, anxiety, disbelief, disruptive behavior, depression. Director of Mayanei Hayeshua’s Mental Health Center, Professor Rael Strous states, ‘We must eradicate the mental health stigma that still plagues religious families. Divorce is one of the main areas where the stigma is strongest.”
To treat and reduce mental health challenges facing Orthodox adolescents, Mayanei Hayeshua is urgently prioritizing the opening of Mercaz Shalom
A 320-bed independent community hospital, it serves the greater Petach Tikva, Bnei Brak and Ramat Gan regions. The hospital’s Mental Health Center was recently designated by Israel’s Health Ministry as the model for every mental health facility in Israel.
