An interactive session for rabbis who work with families facing mental health challenges, crises, and recovery. As a rabbi, what are some of the most difficult situations you’ve faced -- or think you might face -- in terms of mental illness? Why is it important for rabbis to understand the science underlying these serious issues? What are some of the most pressing theological questions surrounding mental illness and suicide?  Collaboration between Rethink the Conversation and Sinai and Synapses.
