Amitim is a nationwide program run in partnership between the IACC and the Ministry of Health, aimed at social rehabilitation of people coping with mental disorders. The program utilizes professional assistance to guide the process of integration in social leisure activities, open to the general public in the community.
The encounter between the participants and program coordinators and the integration of participants into community center activities is unique. As part of the program, participants take part in activities of their choice and receive personal support and guidance according to their needs and desires. These participants will also receive a stipend for participating in classes of their choice and will have the opportunity to volunteer in the community or mentor another Amitim participant in the program's integration process.
In addition, participants can choose to become change agents and facilitators of informational workshops for groups, organizations and various audiences, participate in seminars and speak on panels; Amitim also holds integrated workshops and cultural and artistic highlight events which are open to the public and attended by top-ranking artists and those who cope with mental disorders. These approaches promote a more open community and society in which everyone feels important and a sense of belonging.
