“Youth, and especially at-risk youth, have been through, and are still going through an incredibly difficult year. It started with the COVID outbreak, and then the security situation in light of “Guardians of the Walls.” These things are leaving the youth shaky, both internally and externally,” says ELEM CEO, Inbal Dor Kerbel.
“The constantly growing anxiety has led, even in the last couple of weeks, to an increase in inquiries and requests for help. We’ve received reports of emotional distress and self-harm, which manifested due to the challenges of dealing with this tense reality. We’re with them on every platform, face to face and online. We work hard to find them and assist them everywhere, anytime.”
