Re: Expressing Our Thanks
In the framework of the “Women, Health and Family” Seminar, a part of the curriculum of the Masters Program in Nursing at the Tel-Aviv University, integrate educational field trips are integrated regularly. During this course, mentored by Dr. Mali Ehrenfeld, we had the privilege of visiting Ezer Mizion’s rehabilitative framework for the emotionally ill in Bnei Brak. In the course of this field trip, we visited the rehabilitative workplace and observed the women’s wonderful activity under the marvelous guidance of Mrs. Sarah Kriel and Mrs. Yehudit Tisona.
We spoke with the women and learned how important this supportive framework is for them. One of the women told us what a helpless situation she was in after going through a post-partum depression crisis which left her absolutely non-functional. She is in the Ezer Mizion program for two years now. The therapist described to us the stages of her rehabilitation, the tremendous assistance she received and the extent of her improvement, both in the area of health and rehabilitation, as a result of the structured, supportive framework that enables her to feel she “belongs” and can actualize herself and resume functioning as a wife and mother in her family unit.
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the window you opened for us, enabling us to see this special population segment from close up, and giving us the opportunity to learn first-hand of your notable initiative and wonderful, supportive work.
We are all certain that this crucial project will continue to grow and prosper, and serve as an example for many others to follow.
Thank you so much!
