Jami is a recovery orientated mental health charity serving the Jewish community. The organisation is committed to working alongside statutory services to provide a high quality community-based service which enables people to maximise their potential and take control of their own recovery. With one in four people experiencing mental health difficulties at some time, Jami is here to help them and their families recognise the symptoms and know where and how to seek help.
Prior to COVID-19, Jami welcomed people into its four community hubs based in Edgware, Golders Green, Stanford Hill and Redbridge to support people on their journey towards recovery as well as offering other courses and interventions in person. In response to the crisis and social distancing measures, Jami launched the Community Hub Online and Head Room Online so that support is easily accessible to those in need. Jami also offers volunteering and employment support, befriending, cultural and religious activities, advice and information, and hospital visiting.
Jami is there, not only for those with severe and enduring ill-health, but also to offer education to children, to ensure that they seek help quickly and effectively and so help to prevent more serious ill-health in years to come.
The day to day stresses of normal life are increasing at a considerable rate and we anticipate the support that Jami will need to provide will continue to grow rapidly. With less than 10% of our income coming from statutory funding we still need to raise over £1 million just to keep these services going. That is why, when you leave a legacy to Jami we will be able to carry on supporting those in our community who so vitally need our help.
