Second Annual Smash the Stigma

A Jewish Communal Conversation on Suicide and Depression

Sunday, May 17, 7:00PM

Last year, we hosted a profoundly important and extremely well-received Smash the Stigma event, in which we opened a conversation on suicide and depression in the Jewish community. We are continuing that conversation this year, at a time when mental health awareness is more important than ever, with our second of what we intend to be an annual event -- this year held virtually.

We are proud to present a very strong panel including therapist/chaplain, Rabbi Mimon Mamane, LMSW,  of Congregation Magen David on Sullivan Street, and two exceptional presenters who will share their first-hand experiences of losing a young adult child to suicide, Nina Kampler and Dr. Phil Roth. The panel will be moderated by Jessica Feldman, Director of Programs and Services at NAMI NYC: National Alliance on Mental Illnessan advocacy group dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
