Breaking the Stigma on Mental Illness


Richard Dreyfuss


Richard Dreyfuss to Keynote New JFS Luncheon on
Breaking the Stigma of Mental Illness

Academy-award winner Richard Dreyfuss will keynote a new event this season, to break the stigma of mental illness while benefiting the comprehensive mental health services of Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service (JFS). The community is invited to hear Dreyfuss, who lives with bi-polar disorder, at the Reflections of Hope Luncheon on February 21, 2013, 11:00 am at Boca West Country Club.

“We look forward to welcoming all of our guests to share in an afternoon of hope, inspiration and possibility,” said Deborah Steinberg, who is co-chairing the luncheon with Judi Donoff and Nancy Schiller. “JFS welcomes all who need help, with a sliding fee scale for psychiatric care, psychological evaluation, counseling, support groups, and our remarkable Welcome Home drop-in program - essential services too often out of reach even for those
with insurance.”

“As the daughter of a schizophrenic mother and the mother of a schizophrenic daughter, I felt early and learned deeply the stigma and challenges of mental illness,” said Schiller. “With new medications, after nine years my daughter returned to society as a counselor to the recovering mentally ill, successful author and happy human being. To give back, my husband and I helped found the Welcome Home Program at JFS, where adults with mental illness can gain skills and support in a therapeutic, caring, creative setting.

“We are extremely grateful to those whose generosity has enabled this important new opportunity to raise awareness and vital funds for mental health,” said Donoff. “Our Inaugural Luncheon Sponsor Marleen Forkas has led the way in championing this new effort that will help so many from throughout our community.”

Reflections of Hope is also generously sponsored by Gail & Arthur E. Benjamin Foundation, Ticho Foundation, Alison & Mitch Robbins, and Corporate Sponsors Wells Fargo Private Bank and TEVA Pharmaceuticals. Boca Raton Resort & Club is Exclusive Hotel Sponsor, and Boca Raton Observer is Exclusive Media Sponsor. Additional sponsorships are available.

The cost of attending is $118 per person. To help even more, the luncheon will feature a raffle of luxury items. For more information visit , call 561.852.5013 or email .

A non-profit, non-sectarian agency, Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service of South Palm Beach County has been committed to enhancing and improving the quality of life for all members of the community since 1979. JFS offers help, hope and humanity through a comprehensive range of programs and services which support people of all ages and beliefs. With locations in Boca Raton and Delray Beach, JFS programs and services include food and financial assistance, senior services, counseling and mental health services and many volunteer opportunities. Funding is provided by private and corporate support, grants, special events and individuals. For more information, visit  phone (561) 852-3333 or email .
