Jewish professionals are uniquely situated to create positive environments where not only Jewish learning, but also mental health and wellness, can flourish. Mental, Emotional, and Social Health for Experiential Educators (MESH-EE) helps Jewish professionals expand their understanding of mental health and wellness through experiential education and a Jewish lens, in order to actively promote resilience and help their students thrive.
As a result of BaMidbar’s MESH-EE program, Jewish professionals build the knowledge, skills, and confidence to:
- Promote healthy social and emotional development for all of the youth they serve
- Recognize when youth are at risk of experiencing mental health challenges
- Explore connections between Jewish tradition and mental health and wellness
- Create Jewish educational experiences through a whole-health wellness lens
