Kadima Offers
Info Workshops

K

adima is offering commu-
nity presentations, "Falling
Through the Cracks:
Helping Children with Emotional
and Behavioral Disorders by
Educating Professionals:' an infor-
mative workshop for professionals
in the Jewish community that pro-
vides significant and relevant infor-
mation on these three topics:
• How to identify early signs of
serious childhood and adolescent
emotional and behavioral disorders.
• How to recognize signs of
depression and suicide in youth.
• How to gain access to profes-
sional, referral and advocacy
resources and services.
Jewish educators, lay leaders,
clergy, board members at Jewish
day schools (nursery through high
school), synagogues, temples and
community agencies can receive
critical information on youth sui-
cide attempts, deaths, self-muti-
lation, bullying, Internet-media
influences, substance abuse, mood
disorders and the overwhelming
importance of de-stigmatizing
the diagnosis of mental illness in
youth.
Kadima suggests that the com-
munity be vigilant and make
every effort to prevent children and
adolescent suicide and work to end
the needless suffering of children,
teens and their families who do not
know where to turn, how to find
help or what action to take. The bet-
ter informed educators, staff, clergy,
board members and lay leaders are,
the greater the benefit to the com-
munity and the better the outcome
for these children, adolescents and
their family members.
Those whose synagogue, temple
or agency has not been scheduled
for a Kadima presentation, can con-
tact Ariel Pearl-Jacobvitz at (248)
559-8235, ext. 224 or by email at
arielp@kadimacenter.org to set a
time for a 20-minute presentation
and distribution of related handouts
that include fact sheets and a com-
munity resource directory.
Kadima is a full-service, nonprofit
agency providing programs and
services to adult clients diagnosed
with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder
disease or chronic depression and to
children, ages 3-18, diagnosed with
serious emotional and behavioral
disorders.
Kadima is dedicated to maximiz-
ing client independence and to pro-
moting client reintegration in to the
community. ❑
