Imagine Life... where mental health issues can be discussed openly; where we can learn and discuss mental health stigma; where we can remove the stigma associated with mental health issues; where everyone can be included.

Is your Men’s Club or Brotherhood looking for an engaging, multifaceted program that can be implemented at virtually no cost; a program that is easily scalable for any size group of participants? Are you seeking an innovative way to create a deeper connection among your Men’s Club or Brotherhood members? Would you like to attract “fresh faces” to your club? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then consider taking part in the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs (FJMC) Imagine Live Initiative.


Welcome to the FJMC Imagine Live Initiative, is a unique program that can engage your members to engage in rich and meaningful dialogues about Mental Health and Wellness issues. The FJMC maintains an online portal of program models on topics such as caregiving, healthy aging, addressing substance abuse, behavioral addictions, addressing trauma, use of positive psychology and cultivating mental wellness with the Jewish Prayer for Healing: Mi Sheberach for Mental Health.  

Imagine Life… where mental health issues can be discussed openly; where we can learn and discuss mental health stigma; where we can remove the stigma associated with mental health issues; where everyone can be included.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss starting or maintaining a Mental Wellness program in your Men’s Club or Brotherhood, then please contact any of the FJMC Imagine Life committee members Gary S. Katz, Ph.D. at gary.katz@fjmc.org; Gary Smith, D.V.M. at gvet@me.com or Steven Mandel, M.D. at drmandel1979@aol.com.
