For members of our Jewish community who are living with a severe and persistent mental health diagnosis (psychosis, depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia), IPCM offers an innovative model for developing the practical and interpersonal skills to live a more independent and socially connected life.
Through a relationship-based approach, our experienced case managers work with clients to identify needs and create a personalized action plan built around independent living goals. We’re committed to providing the one-on-one support and encouragement our clients need to build a life of independence.
To benefit from IPCM, participants must be able and willing to consent to their own participation in the program. Participants must also be following treatment recommendations from doctors and mental health professionals.
Our definition of wellness includes having someone to laugh with and confide in. JFS is committed to helping members of the Jewish community find meaningful ways to connect and share support.
JFS’s Behavioral Health Committee works to open up the discussion around mental health through a series of events and educational panels featuring some of the most engaging speakers in the field.
JFS Patient Advocates work with individuals in psychiatric care facilities and hospitals to ensure respect for their rights as a patient.
