Thank you to our friend/ally Sally Spencer-Thomas for featuring Elijah's Journey work in this piece!

As we start a new year with new aspirations and intentions, dealing with a mental health or suicide crisis can be particularly challenging. Other seems so full of hope, while you—or a loved one—are struggling. For those with a strong faith background or spiritual sensibility, the difficulties ca...

We met members of Eric's (z"l) family on the 2016 American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk and are so grateful for the work they are doing.
'“Bottom line is saving lives,” said Goldman about suicide. “The Talmud says whoever saves a life is as if he saved the world. We have to do anything we can to destigmatize mental illness and have treatment available.”'

Eric Levenson was an honors student at the Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School in Livingston. He had friends, took a painting class at the Montclair Art Museum, played guitar and piano, and loved movies.

Elana Premack Sandler writes in Psychology Today about her experiences spending Shabbat and walking with Team Elijah's Journey at the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk:

'Traditionally, Jewish communities have been quiet, sometimes silent, about suicide. Like other social issues, such as addiction or domestic violence, mental illness and suicide can be frightening to face in an insular community. People facing mental illness as well as families left behind after a suicide dea...th sometimes describe feeling isolated, on the margins, or misunderstood by their Jewish communities. This experience is not unique to the Jewish community. It likely crosses the boundaries of other communities with a history of marginalization. There is fear of “airing our dirty laundry” and being judged by “outsiders.”

Still, in this group, we spoke more openly about our experiences of struggle, sadness, fear, loss, and moving forward than, I’d venture to guess, close friends of many years might speak about these issues. We kept noticing, and saying, that it seemed like we’d been best friends for years. Truly, we had just met.'
