One out of every four families is touched by mental illness. The challenges are 

  daunting. Open Our Hearts is working to educate people about  

  mental illness; to provide needed support to families and their loved ones with

  mental illness; and to further this mission by helping Jewish synagogues and 

  agencies to make mental illness a recognized part of tikkun olam.
