Friendship Circle UMatter's "One Thing I Wish You Knew" event was featured in the West Bloomfield Beacon. “When [teens] are missing the deep knowledge, understanding, that they are here in this world for a purpose... there could be an easy way of real, kind of brought-on depression and a feeling of emptiness," says Friendship Circle Co-Founder Bassie Shemtov. "And that’s how UMatter was created, to bring awareness to our teenagers that ‘you matter.’” #FCMichigan
Read about UMatter's recent "One Thing I Wish You Knew" event and the importance of discussing teen mental health in the West Bloomfield Beacon:

A few weeks back during the height of the coronavirus lockdown, I was jogging with my son; a safe, sanctioned activity. This brought us in the vicinity of a ma*****na dispensary I shall not name. The deluge of customers spoke volumes. Either we are a very sickly nation verging on a zombie apocalypse-scale crisis, or there is a huge slice of our population getting stoned for fun. While it has been legalized, and I agree, it’s not as bad as alcohol, it would still be equivalent to a form of open intoxication. It’s gotten so pervasive that you can’t walk in front of certain houses without catching a wall-like odor of very special skunk. We would like to think this town has a little bit of class, not to mention kids running around. It’s difficult to see how being a good parent meshes with being devoted to ma*****na, unless you keep your kids on a short tether whereby they don’t get out much. This is very well disguised in an age of digital screens taking the place of parenting time. To us, nurturing still involves some physical exertion, not too compatible with dope smoking. It doesn’t mesh well with being a good neighbor, either. While this could be “dope shaming”, it’s hard to reconcile this seeming contradiction in an age where work ethic is downright fetishized. We are a nation that brags compulsively about how many hours a week we work, never mind the pay or object. Most other countries simply work to live, and look forward to quality time spent with family, bereft of the ingenuous tinge of, “oh, I would [insert responsible leisure activity here], but I don’t have the time,” i.e. “I’m more valuable/ motivated than you, slacker!” This is not a virtue, nor a means to an ends, so I understand when folks, (many with this toxic, exploitive view,) want to kick back and totally unwind, with noxious results. But weren’t most of us taught (albeit ingenuously,) that if you habitually need drugs for a good time, that’s a problem? One day, my supervisor was extoling the virtues of keeping our noses to the grind-stone, and not being a burden on the next guy, (this was 9:00 AM, FYI.) As we rolled up to a stop light, I noticed the driver in the next vehicle toking the reefer…while on his cell phone….. a few things wrong with this picture. Captain working class hero beside me, stated “Don’t worry about it, it’s his business, besides, he’s probably on his way to work!” INDEED. Collectively our values have become so skewed that some folks are subtly afraid to confront what is a social problem with grave ramifications for the future. Particularly men who smoke w**d, have erectile problems, immotile s***m, and won’t be having kids any time soon. Family men. It’s none the less amazing who can pull it off while raising kids. I like to call this multi-tasking. Leaving aside glorified workaholism, grinding down 80 hours a week to “deserve” some combination of alcohol or w**d is not why we exist. It’s a poor example to say the least. SO have a little class! It’s (at least) every bit as noxious as ci******es, and look how to***co smokers get hassled! There exist certain streets in Oakland County where folks in the past 4 years have been afraid/intimidated to walk down. This is because someone has a reputation for growing ma*****na, (outside in the bushes abutting wetlands, how resourceful.) This began well before it was legalized. It’s lost on me how ma*****na is being regulated, and I don’t blame the police. They have to pick their battles in an age where every other person is a self-entitled INDIVIDUAL. Unless someone is suffering from a profound cancer I’ve never heard of, please don’t make the rest of us a captive guest to your clam-bake. I don’t have a medical degree, and am not invoking the benefits or detriments of pot. All I know, is the people my age (40) who indulge in it, look like the Crypt Keeper. Let’s bring back a healthy, genuine sense of neighborhood pride. Let’s have an official stamp out pot day! Please keep it in the bathroom, the basement, or behind the shed in the back yard, the official propriety of delinquent teenagers. Perhaps sobering up would remind us what life is really all about
