Nesivos Hosts Hundreds Of Mental Health Professionals At Fourth Annual Networking Event


Nesivos held its fourth annual Networking Event for mental health professionals on Sunday, drawing over 200 attendees eager to enhance their skills and build valuable relationships within their field. The event took place at Nesivos’ soon-to-be-opened Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) facility, which will serve as a comprehensive treatment center for individuals struggling with addiction and mental health issues, catering to both adults and children.

The event, emcee’d by Nesivos Clinical Director Rabbi Binyamin Greenspoon, LCSW, featured a variety of expert-led discussions and was headlined by numerous leading practitioners in the mental health field. Attendees had the opportunity to explore different models of treatment and target populations, gaining insights from a diverse array of perspectives.

An exhibition space allowed sponsors to showcase their contributions to the mental health field, introducing attendees to innovative treatment modalities. Notable sponsors included Nefesh International, Ray of Hope, LCSC, Chemed, Amudim, SilverCare, Reliable Office Services, and Chayim Wallk, who demonstrated the use of neurofeedback machines in therapy.

Rav Shalom Kamenetzky shlit”a delivered a compelling address on contemporary mental health challenges, providing a hashkafic perspective on treating mental health issues, emphasizing how the current mental health crisis is part of the broader ikvesa d’meshicha. His address was followed by a Q&A session, allowing practitioners to engage directly with him on pertinent issues.

The event also featured a panel discussion moderated by Moshe Norman, LCSW. The panel, which included Duvi Kessner of Relief Resources, psychotherapist Matis Miller, and Ray of Hope Chief Clinical Officer Dovid Cohen, delved into the nuances of good versus bad therapy, offering attendees a deeper understanding of effective and ineffective therapeutic practices.

Following the panel, networking breakout sessions were organized by treatment modalities and populations served. Each group was led by an expert in their respective field, providing participants with the latest trends, resources, and networking opportunities. These breakout sessions allowed mental health practitioners to gain valuable insights and foster professional connections.

The event highlighted Nesivos’ commitment to advancing the field of mental health through education, collaboration, and innovation. As Nesivos prepares to open its new IOP facility in Toms River, the organization remains dedicated to supporting mental health professionals and improving patient care.
