KeepOlim's Low Cost Support Groups
Sadly, ⅓ of all suicides in Israel are Olim. KeepOlim is developing a program to combat depression among Olim. Mental Health care in Israel for Olim in their native languages is completely lacking in Israel. Olim sometimes wait for months to speak to a counselor in their native language. Depressed Olim lacking jobs, friends and family quickly lose hope and leave Israel defeated. KeepOlim is developing quality low cost subsidized individual counseling sessions which will be subsidized by KeepOlim and given in their native language. These sessions will be designed to help Olim overcome their own personal issues that they face as well as empower them in their new homeland.
KeepOlim is proud to present our pilot program for Support Groups, which is the first part of our Low Cost Subsidized Mental Health Program for All Olim. This Support Group Program will consist of 8-10 individuals and an experienced therapist. The support groups will meet once a week for 8 weeks and only cost 200 shekels per participant for the 8 sessions. If an individual cannot afford the support group, please contact KeepOlim privately, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
The support groups will be in a number of locations across Israel and will be conducted in English, Spanish, and Russian for the pilot program. Other languages will follow once the program expands. The pilot program will deal with various issues concerning your lives as Olim such as depression, job search, loneliness, language culture barriers, adjusting to Israel, family issues, etc.

I am not even in Israel but I hope to come back at some point, so talking to people in this group, and just reading what other people post, has already meant a lot to me. You and this group mean more to people than you are aware of!
