Mayanei Hayeshua achieves top three placing in nationwide competition of initiatives that will improve the health system in 2024
Over 300 initiatives were submitted to the Reboot Forum’s ‘Leading Health Initiative of the Year’ competition this year, in collaboration with the Yediot Ahronoth group and Ynet, that were then ranked according to their feasibility, their contribution to patients and the health system and the extent of their impact in improving public health.
Mayanei Hayeshua’s Mordechai Fachler Family Therapy Center – at the time a somewhat revolutionary holistic model for treating families struggling in the area of mental health – was chosen as one of the top three initiatives. Thanks to the vision of its director, Nechama Samuel, this Unit, designed as an apartment, was established with the financial support of the British Friends of Mayanei Hayeshua and is located in Mayanei Hayeshua’s impressive 6 story mental Health Center.
The stated aim of the hospital’s Family Therapy Unit is to professionally address and treat the unique difficulties that characterize children and parents who are living in the shadow of a significant mental challenge of one or more of their family members.
