"While teens who are less anxious and have higher self-esteem may find it easier to form strong friendships, the research finds that close, supportive friendships contribute to greater mental-health outcomes in the long term, no matter the baseline, says lead author Rachel Narr. Teens who have experienced good friendships gain the motivation and ability to build more supportive social networks in the future."

Number one way to foster these relationships is having good social skills.

Unfortunately we spend lots of time trying to present a "picture perfect" life. "We can’t be afraid of the fact that things are not always picture perfect." This article is a great reminder of the struggles of today..

Please note that our JFS staff has signed up to help with the warmline...

As the news images have shown us, the impact of Hurricane Harvey has been severe and is expected to be felt by the Jewish community of Houston for quite some time.
In an effort to be both responsive to those in need, and supportive of our colleagues at JFS Houston, the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies is establishing an EMERGENCY RESPONSE warmline.

This response line, structured as a Google telephone line will provide a timely, professional and supportive response to those who are seeking guidance in managing the many losses resulting from the damages of the Hurricane. While the concrete losses will be addressed by the social work staff at JFS Houston, primarily by providing assistance with filing insurance claims and responding to requests for emergency financial assistance, the longer lasting implications of the losses can be supported by clinicians who can offer focused assistance in managing the impact of the trauma and finding personal and family resilience to move forward.

Many agencies of the Network have already reached out to offer assistance. Beyond guiding community members to the donation boxes which have been established by the Jewish Federations of North America and the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston, we are asking clinical social workers of our Network who are willing to make themselves available for telephone based supportive counseling sessions to join us and select dates of availability on this form. With this initial outreach, we are looking to provide clinical phone staffing, on a scheduled appointment basis, for a minimum of 30 days. The focus would be to provide anxiety and stress reduction counseling.

Thank you, in advance, for joining us in this effort to support the Houston Jewish community in its time of greatest need.
As Jewish tradition teaches, a community is too heavy to carry alone. The Network is strengthened and sustained by the full participation and support of its members.

Should you have any immediate questions, please feel free to reach out to Genie Cohen , Chief Program Officer, Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies .

Thank you,
June Gutterman and Jim Kahn, Co-Chairs, Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies
Reuben D. Rotman, CEO & President, Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies
