The Doctor Is In

An advocate for kids, an ambassador for reducing the stigma still associated with mental illness . . . that’s how Lilly Jacobson sees her role in the community these days. And her days are full. A clinical psychologist, formerly affiliated with Children’s Hospital of Michigan and currently in private practice, as well as the Chair of Federation’s Youth Mental Health Initiative, Lilly has made it her goal to educate the community about current mental health issues and to reach young people (and those who love and influence them) with positive messages of self-worth. “We need to talk about depression and anxiety as major health problems among our youth,” she affirms. “Too many of our children are struggling in silence. We Need to Talk – a Federation initiative in partnership with the community – has become our call to action.”

Out, Open and Welcoming

Mother and father. Sister and brother. She. He. They are a family: Richard and Roz Keith – husband and wife, partners in business and proud parents of two young adults, Danielle, an MSU grad and holistic health coach in Boca Raton, FL, and Hunter, now a junior at Eastern Michigan, majoring in psychology. Each in his, her, their way has embraced change in their family roles to become wiser, gentler and smarter about gender identity.

The Real Deal

She has the brains of an engineer, the heart of a social worker, the gentle soul of a Jewish educator . . . and the spunk and determination of a roller derby athlete (Detroit Roller Derby, #314). For her “derby-girl” role on the track, her three children fondly have given her the name “Mad-Eye” (a tribute to Harry Potter). In her leading role as Coordinator of The Jewish Fund Teen Board, Martha Goldberg has touched and changed hundreds of lives, bringing a new generation of social activists together to practice their skills in leadership and advocacy and leave their mark as grant- makers in service to the community.
