Who We Are

Our community always rises to the help support families in crisis. It is time to recognize that mental illness like any other illness creates incredible stress on a family.


Project Ometz, a project of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in Teaneck, NJ aims to create a community wide initiative to help these families. Ometz will help reduce the isolation felt by parents of children with mental illness by providing support and encouragement. The cornerstone of Ometz is its Parent Mentor Volunteers (PMVs) who share their knowledge based on their own experience raising a child with mental illness.

Parents will have the opportunity to get support from PMVs and learn from the experience of these parents who have had to deal with a child with mental health struggles. PMVs help navigate the challenges of raising and supporting a child with mental health issues by sharing information, support and advocacy.
