Mental Health in Our Communities
From Personal Struggle to Innovation
On Sunday July 11, 2021, Avnei Chein hosted another community-wide event to bring into focus the extent of mental health struggles in our community – and in fact – every community.
The introductory speaker, Barry Dinner is a pillar of the Beit Shemesh medical community, having practiced here for over 15 years. As a general practitioner, Dr. Dinner is keenly aware of the prevalence of mental health crises in our community and discussed the current situation from his unique perspective.
The keynote speaker, Hillel Fuld, is a globally recognized tech blogger, podcaster, public speaker and a leading online influencer. Hillel spoke candidly and courageously about his personal struggle with mental health, and connected it to his area of expertise, his passion – innovations and technology currently being developed in Israel.
The evening was dedicated to mental health awareness, with the goal of empowering individuals and their loved ones struggling with a mental health challenge, demonstrating what support and services are available from Avnei Chein and that families are not alone in this journey.
