The Nefesh Network is Friendship Circle's Mental Health piece that serves anyone struggling with their mental health through religious counseling and peer mentoring. In consultation with Dr. Bella Shanzer formally of Baylor and Dr. Matt Stanford of The Hope and Healing Center, and in cooperation with the JFS and Mrs. Linda Burger, we are working to build a network of volunteers to be peers to those struggling to help give friendship and encouragement. Nefesh Network is also affiliated with the JLI’s Wellness Institute which enables us to teach an accredited suicide prevention course that will be released in spring of 2021.  We have also developed a Peer mentoring curriculum which is currently being used in NY for a pilot program.
