Yachad, the National Jewish Council for Disabilities, announced the opening of the new Yachad/NJCD Counseling Center, an expansion of its existing clinical services. Counseling and support services will be available at two locations: Yachad/OU Headquarters at 11 Broadway in Manhattan, and at 1122 Coney Island Avenue in Brooklyn. Payment will be on a sliding scale and financial needs will be assessed before the start of services.

Dr. Jeffrey Lichtman, Director of Yachad/NJCD, stated, “To meet the Jewish community’s increasing demands for disability-specific counseling services, Yachad has dramatically increased the size of its clinical team…Our counseling program now includes thirty graduate-level social work and advanced psychology Ph.D.-level clinicians-in-training to work in conjunction with Yachad’s staff social workers, psychologists, and licensed psychotherapists.” See more here.
