    Jewish Family Service is shining a light on mental health in the community at the agency’s Spotlight Event 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, at Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield. The evening will feature Liza Long, mental health advocate and author of The Price of Silence: A Mom’s Perspective on Mental Illness. After the Newtown school shooting in 2012, Long wondered if her son, who has bipolar disorder, was capable of committing a similar act in her blog post “I Am Adam Lanza’s Mother.” The post went viral, leading to her appearance on The Today Show, Good Morning America, and many other outlets. Her book looks at how we address mental illness, especially in children. Admission is $36, two for $60, or $10 for students. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling 248-592-2339. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Jewish Family Service provides comprehensive services to the community, including counseling and suicide prevention trainings, touching the lives of over 14,000 individuals and families each year.
