COVID-19 Crisis Appeal

Anxiety and isolation caused by this pandemic have had a significant impact on people living with mental illness, as well as those who may not have experienced mental health problems previously, and we have already seen a rapid increase in demand for our support. Your donation to our COVID-19 Crisis Appeal will help us provide critical mental health services to our community.

Service Update

At this crisis time, we will continue to provide practical and emotional support for everyone affected by a mental health problem, further expanding our services to support people who may be isolated by Coronavirus (COVID-19).

In line with government advice we are providing:

  • Food deliveries and door-step chats ensuring essential provisions and human contact are maintained
  • An expanded telephone befriending service to check in regularly with people self-isolating
  • Redeployed office and other staff to support service users
  • The community with regular information on caring for their own and loved ones’ mental health throughout the crisis

For 30 years Jami has provided practical and emotional support for the mental health of the Jewish community.

Jami’s vision is a Jewish community which accepts, acknowledges and understands mental illness. A community which is resilient and has the capacity and capability to be healthy. A community in which symptoms of mental illness are as recognisable as a heart attack and trigger an equally appropriate First Aid response. A community in which Parity of Esteem is a reality and an environment which helps, not hinders recovery.

We work with individuals, communities and organisations to help prevent mental illness from developing, improve early intervention and promote wellbeing.
