Thank you for the opportunity to help! And yes, your exactly right, this topic of mental health should be mainstream and love and acceptance must be felt and given by all especially in the Chabad community that invented “No Jew Left Behind!” May your beautiful children have an immediate and permanent refuah shlaimeh and yeshuos, bgashmius and bruchnias and for all who need it!

Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan has an excellent out patient psychiatric program.
Free of charge if your are on Medicare, both for therapy and medications
