Last week, more than 120 clients and staffers from Ohel’s adult mental health services clients and staff went on a three-day retreat to Bushkill Inn in the Poconos. All the clients live in an Ohel residence or in Ohel’s supported housing and apartment programs. With the help of Ohel’s team of staff and therapists, many participants with significant psychiatric disabilities are effectively managing their illnesses and lead fulfilled, independent lives, integrated in the community.
This annual trip provides participants with temporary relief from the anxieties of life. It gives them an opportunity to go beyond their normal limits, and the freedom to push themselves out of their comfort zones.
Ohel serves thousands in need every day in communities in New Jersey, New York, California, and worldwide. For information, call (800)-603-OHEL (6435) or go to www.ohelfamily.org.
