I take the Refuat Hanefesh Pledge to open my heart to those with mental illness. I will seek to understand the illness and not judge or ignore. I will attempt to view mental illness in the same way as physical illness and increase my compassion. I commit to calling, preparing a meal, praying, listening or giving support in other ways to someone who is suffering from a mental illness.

Besides praying, I will continue to try to understand and communicate with those who are unable to articulate their thoughts easily. Whether at work, school, or in a public setting, these interactions are very meaningful. It's something I've been trying to do for a while with autistic campers who visit my work.
