On September 8, Yesh Tikva will be hosting its second Peer Mentor Training in Teaneck. Fertility Friends, a program run by Yesh Tikva, provides individualized support to women and men facing infertility by pairing each participant with a peer mentor on the other side of a similar journey. Each participant undergoes an intake and is then matched by Yesh Tikva’s Fertility Friends Director Dr. Talia Hindin. All peer mentors must participate in a customized YT Peer Mentor Training presented by YT’s clinical consultant Dvora Entin, LCSW, before being paired with participants.
Yesh Tikva, Hebrew for “There is Hope,” was established to end the silence and create a community of support for all Jewish people facing infertility. Yesh Tikva gives a voice to these struggles, breaks down barriers and facilitates the conversation surrounding infertility. For more information visit www.YeshTikva.org.
