School Addresses Mental Health

In a new effort to acknowledge mental health issues affecting our community, Bais Rivkah Girls High School hosted their first mental health day.

In a new effort to acknowledge mental health issues affecting our community, Bais Rivkah Girls High School hosted their first mental health day, offering three workshops on How to Find Happiness, presented from both a Torah and medical perspective.

The workshops featured Rabbi Simon Jacobson on Happiness: How To Be Happy and Master Your Emotions, Mrs. Aidella Blesofsky on 12 (Tried and True) Steps to Happiness and Shaya Sussman LCSW on Emotional Wellness and Signs to Recognize When to Seek Further Help.

Mrs. Sara Blau, Extracurricular Director at BRHS, in conjunction with Mrs. Aliza Hirsch, BRHS’s LCSW, are planning another two mental health days this year, one focusing on the topic of food and a healthy body, and another focusing on relationships.

Listen to Rabbi Simon Jacobson’s audio talk to the High School students, titled: Happiness: How To Be Happy and Master Your Emotions and download a 1-page printout with key points, takeaways and daily exercises.

Nice
Very nice. They also had a wonderful program last night for mothers regarding technology. They really care about the girls. During the presentation I heard the words leadership role” uses more times than I could count. They are nurturing the leaders of tomorrow. Thank you Morah Teichtel.

Emotional Intelligence
They should also include a class on emotional intelligence. Maybe give out copies of a book for girls to take home and read.

Rabbi Jacobson was an amazing speaker!
I'm a br student, and I participated of course in health day, and my absolute favorite part was hearing Rabbi Jacobson speak about happiness! It gave such a new spin on things, and my idea of happiness was completely turned around. Really gave me tons of food for thought. It was a very good choice for Br to bring him in because I really enjoyed how he took real issues and brought them psychologically and Al pi Torah in such a real, clear way! Thank you BRHS!!
