Mental health issues: conditions

Mental health issues can range from the stresses we all feel in our daily lives to more serious long-term conditions, such as schizophrenia. Most mental health conditions can either be overcome or managed, especially with early diagnosis and intervention.

For information about the many different types of mental health conditions, please visit the Mental health A-Z section of the Mental Health Foundation website.

Although there are no mental health conditions specific to the Jewish community, many Holocaust survivors and refugees experience the effects of trauma. In London, the Holocaust Survivors Centre runs the Shalvata service, which provides counselling and emotional support for Holocaust survivors and refugees.

To find out more, please visit the Holocaust Survivors and Refugees section of the Jewish Care website.

To learn about health conditions that affect mainly Jewish people, please visit the Jnetics website or visit the Jewish health issues section of Jewish Care Interact.

Finally, to request information about--or support for--mental health and the Jewish community, contact Jami.
