Promoting Community Mental Health

JFCS Counseling Services provides staff development, crisis counseling and educational workshops for organizations; consultation and training for preschool/daycare personnel for addressing children's behavioral health needs; and family life education programs focusing on a variety of topics including disability awareness, caring for aging parents and domestic violence.

JFCS Counseling Services therapists offer training and consultation with staff at schools, camps, synagogues and other organizations. Licensed social workers and psychologists provide training in areas such as staff morale, conflict resolution and stress management.

How We Help

In schools and organizations that serve children, we partner with you to provide observation, intervention and other services. We offer training to staff in areas such as developmental issues, identifying and responding to behavioral problems and conflicts, understanding mental health issues in youthful populations, how to deal with a crisis and more.

At senior facilities like nursing homes and housing communities, we educate staff about issues pertaining to aging such as mental health status, identifying and addressing inappropriate or concerning behavior, recognizing emotional needs and general counseling issues as they relate to seniors.

We also serve businesses and professional groups, such as Chambers of Commerce, through workshops and educational seminars that cover topics like mental health issues in the workplace. We provide employees with appropriate resources to address private concerns and individual needs.

Healthy social and emotional development during the early years of life provide a foundation for later success. Our goal is to support you as you help the children in your care develop appropriate social and emotional foundations to support their continued growth.

How We Help

Our services to preschools and daycare centers equip your staff with the knowledge and tools they need to understand and address the social and emotional needs of young children. We provide training, consultation, observation, assessment and direct support and referrals for children and families. With these skills, potential problems can be identified and addressed early. We also provide direct intervention (counseling, consultation), working with children and their parents to address behavior problems, as well as links to services and opportunities from which they may benefit.
