The mentally ill in Israel are very lonely...
We must help them rise!
Zimra – From emotional crisis to empowerment !
Zimra offers support to the mentally ill in Israel, bringing them a ray of light and a glimmer of hope in their difficult lives.
Alone – at home or in the hospital – they crave some attention, a smile or a sympathetic ear, like they had in the past.
What is mental health?
Mental health refers to our cognitive, behavioral and emotional well-being. Our thoughts, actions, and feelings are the products of mental health.
Mental health influences our daily lives, relationships, and even physical health. The ability to enjoy life by balancing our myriad roles and tasks is achieved through psychological resilience.
Who suffers from mental illness in Israel?
- Holocaust survivors
- IDF soldiers who fought in battle, with post-trauma stress disorders
- Terror victims experiencing trauma
- People overcome by a crisis, who lack resilience, and are in need of love
A Warm Heart
Zimra volunteers reach out to the mentally ill by visiting them at home or in the psychiatric hospitals. The volunteers bring joy and hope to patients who otherwise have no support. Often, the encouragement provided by the volunteers are an emotional anchor for the mentally ill. In addition,
Zimra organizes wide-ranging activities and ongoing services throughout the year to improve their quality of life.
We are here for them!
