Lectures at local schools such as: Eitz Chaim, CHAT, etc.
Prof. Rael Strous delivered special lectures at local schools in Canada, such as: Eitz Chaim, CHAT, etc.
One of the highlights of the week was the opportunity afforded to Professor Strous to address Jewish local school audiences – educators as well as students – on eating disorders and pre-teen and adolescent suicide. Eitz Chaim and CHAT were among several local schools visited by the professor.
The lectures were given in order to grow awareness among staff and sudents to mental problems. Part of the lectures were given to the teachers, and others to students.
These lectures reflect the huge innovation in the mental health field. The fact a senior psychiatric can give lectures in subjects that considered complete taboo until a few years ago is amazing. It shows the world gets open. That people are ready to face reality. They stop to deny the problems, fight and defeat them completely.
