Ted and Deborah Bernstein Family Foundation (BFF)
The Ted and Deborah Bernstein Family Foundation (BFF) was founded in 2007 to advocate therapeutic counseling to families in crisis.
Boca Raton, FL (I-Newswire) October 16, 2013 - "It is tragic to see the proliferation of crises going on in the world around us." said Deborah Bernstein. "We created the foundation because, we understand and empathize with the potential problems that arise by not treating the underlying issues. From the senseless school shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the Colorado Movie theater, and the recent Navy Yard Massacre in Washington, D.C., the country is beginning to focus on dealing with the causes rather than the symptoms.
As more young people are taking their own lives in record numbers, it It saddens the Bernstein's to know that if more people had access to receive help, at the appropriate time, it might prevent these extreme tragedies.
Tragically, therapeutic counseling is still considered a "luxury" in this country. It is expensive, with little or no insurance coverage available. It is a shame to leave people without basic mental health coverage, says, Ted Bernstein "recourse for the most important help, at the time they need it most."
The Bernstein's have funded the BFF and continually look for new ways to raise awareness for this cause. Most recently, Deborah wrote and launched her first Children's book with the goal to create a series for young readers to become inspired. The first book in Bernstein's "STYLISH STELLA" book series is geared to promote confidence and build self-esteem for young readers. A percentage of all book sales are gifted back to the BFF Foundation that works with various school, hospitals and health care professionals.
