Enosh, the Israel Mental Health Association
Enosh is a voluntary, non- profit organization with
53 branches throughout Israel. Established in 1978, Enosh works
to advance and improve mental health services in the community
and to ensure quality of life for the mentally and their families.
Enosh runs a variety of social rehabilitation frameworks
that enable the mentally ill to live independently in the community
and that reduce the need for psychiatric hospitalization. Psychiatric
hospitals and rehabilitation frameworks release many people into
the community. These people, like those mentally ill who have
never been hospitalized, have many urgent and varied needs to
which Enosh addresses itself and tries to provide answers.
Enosh activities cover the following areas:
- Social rehabilitation
- Clubs for leisure time activities
- Sheltered housing
Each branch of Enosh is responsible for raising funds
to finance its activities, some of which are partially supported
by the Ministry of Health.
The Chairman of the national organization is Mr. Tuvia
The President is Mrs. Hanita Rodney.
