We Need to Talk (WN2T) is a youth mental health initiative of the Detroit Jewish Community aimed at increasing awareness of mental illness, reducing stigmas and improving access to services. WN2T works in partnership with Jewish Detroit’s human service agencies, schools, synagogues, and youth-serving organizations. Together, WN2T and partners provide educational programming, trainings, and funding for additional mental health professionals to support young people and their families. Learn more at wn2t.org.

This opportunity is made possible with a grant from The Jewish Education Project.
