REAL MHI is for everyone. A minimum of 1 in 5 people are navigating a mental health issue at any moment in time. Even if you aren't personally impacted, we all have family members, friends, or neighbors who are. Your participation in REAL MHI’s programs helps build a community that prioritizes support for anyone, at any time. All perspectives and experiences are welcome!

REAL MHI reduces stigma. Stigma reduction happens when we talk openly about mental health, mental illness and addiction and learn to respond to misperceptions or negative comments by sharing facts and experiences. We further reduce stigma when individuals feel safe, connected, and supported enough to share their own personal stories with others within our community. 

REAL MHI sees and values the whole person. Now in our 9th year, we create effective and inclusive programs for all ages that see and value each individual as a whole person. We educate the entire community in order to reduce stigma around mental health and create opportunities for open dialogue and support.

REAL MHI is a place for you to get involved. When more members of our community are educated, ready, and willing to connect with each other, people who previously turned away from their synagogue for support are able to turn towards it.  Attend a REAL Conversations speaker series featuring cutting-edge thought-leaders and educators, an engaging film series, or a peer-lead support group. Volunteer on one of our REAL committees and help us shape this initiative to reflect the needs and priorities of our community. There are so many ways to help build this community of support for all.
