In 2023, MHANJ’s Angelini and Stephens conducted a mental health class for military families, supported by several organizations and the Greater Newark Holiday Fund.
The Mental Health Association in New Jersey (MHANJ) has been a long-standing pillar of support, resource, and refuge for individuals grappling with mental health and substance use disorders. With its rich history and unwavering commitment to enhancing lives, it’s no wonder the community holds MHANJ in such high esteem.
MHANJ is known for its comprehensive services, which include emotional support, information dissemination, referrals, and community outreach. It also provides psycho-educational services, coping strategies, and linkages with other individuals, ensuring a holistic approach to mental health care.
Digital Therapeutic Programs
In a bid to keep up with the evolving times and needs, MHANJ partnered with GoMo Health to create personalized digital therapeutic programs. These programs aim to offer behavioral and mental health services to New Jersey residents, further broadening their reach and impact.
Advocacy and Support
The organization doesn’t just stop at providing services. They actively promote good mental health, work to reduce barriers that prevent people from seeking help, and strive to eradicate the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Their advocacy extends to a broader scale, with the New Jersey Association of Mental Health and Addiction Agencies (NJAMHAA) condemning violent attacks and extending their support in times of distress.
MHANJ and the Military Community
In 2023, Jaime Angelini and Neal Stephens from MHANJ conducted a class on mental health first aid for military members, veterans, and their families. This initiative, held at the SpectraCare Foundation and Carlton R. Rouh Veterans Center in collaboration with the New Jersey Hospital Association, exemplifies their dedication to all segments of the community.
