Build The Resilience to Thrive

BaMidbar Supports Mental Health and Wellness in the Jewish Community

Why Bamidbar

Almost 1 in 4 young adults (18-25) and 1 in 6 youth (6-17) experience mental health disorders each year, and only 38% of young adults and 50% of youth receive treatment.

Mental health challenges are as common in the Jewish community as in the rest of society, yet there are limited resources within a Jewish framework. As the only Jewish wilderness therapy program in the United States, BaMidbar is able to provide a unique perspective on the intersection of Judaism, mental health, and teen and young adult development.

Through mental health education, prevention, and treatment programs, BaMidbar encourages participants to redefine how they view themselves, reevaluate their capabilities, and rediscover their vision for a brighter tomorrow.

Our Programs

BaMidbar addresses mental health and wellness in the Jewish community through a three-pronged approach. We focus on mental health prevention, education, and treatment.
