Bais Rivkah High School Learns About Happiness

In a new effort to acknowledge mental health issues affecting our community, Bais Rivkah Girls High School hosted their first mental health day, offering three workshops on How to Find Happiness, presented from both a Torah and medical perspective.

The workshops featured:

Rabbi Simon Jacobson – Happiness: How To Be Happy and Master Your Emotions

Mrs Aidella Blesofsky – 12 (Tried and True) Steps to Happiness

Shaya Sussman LCSW – Emotional Wellness and Signs to Recognize When to Seek Further Help.

Mrs. Sara Blau, Extracurriculm Director at BRHS, in conjunction with Mrs. Aliza Hirsch, BRHS’s LCSW, are planning another two mental health days this year, one focusing on the topic of food and a healthy body, and another focusing on relationships.

Listen to Rabbi Simon Jacobson’s audio talk to the High School students, titled: Happiness: How To Be Happy and Master Your Emotions and download a 1-page printout with key points, takeaways and daily exercises.

    this is great to hear. this can be a great help in so many ways. thankyou for telling us that this has been implemented. May it only get better and better.
    maybe the girls can make a booklet to share with the community? That would help them learn to share the information, and would help all of us receiving it.
