A Beautiful Mind: Jewish Approaches To Mental Health

This year's annual Medical Ethics conference organized by the Yeshiva University Student Medical Ethics Society will cover topics related to mental health and is called "A Beautiful Mind: Jewish Approaches to Mental Health."

The conference will take place on Sunday, October 31st!

This event, as are all the events MES puts together, is a MUST attend for anyone interest in pursuing a career in healthcare (that's pre-meds, pre-nurses, pre-psychologists, etc) as well as students interested in pursuing a career as a teacher, counselor or rabbi.

The annual MES conference is always very well organized, with fantastic speakers presenting on a variety of fascinating topics that show how halacha and hashkafa impact the way we interact with major areas of discussion in the world around us. You will not be disappointed if you take the time to go!

This particular conference is very significant since it is one of the first of its kind in the Orthodox Jewish world that is addressing issues related to mental health in such a public, yet dignified manner.

I've been to the last few conferences, each of which was an amazing and enjoyable event unto itself. This year I'll be there with ASoG, and you should go too!
