Major pharmaceutical companies are all growing their businesses by being members of NJAMHAA's Life Sciences and Innovation Council and tapping into New Jersey's vast behavioral healthcare market. NJAMHAA is the leading trade association in New Jersey representing the needs of nonprofit behavioral health provider organizations.
The Integrated Healthcare Council (IHC) is made up of for-profit and corporate entities that offer a variety of products and services that enhance our member providers’ effectiveness and efficiencies. While they meet formally only on an ad hoc basis, IHC members actively participate in NJAMHAA conferences, committees and practice groups, and receive information on pertinent issues in New Jersey and around the nation. In addition, they benefit from interaction with members through demonstrations, publication of articles and reduced-rate vending opportunities and ads for increased visibility.
Membership in the NJAMHAA’s Technology Council provides representatives from your company with the extraordinary opportunity to meet and discuss ideas and information with NJAMHAA’s membership, comprised of almost 160 hospital-based and freestanding community mental health agencies and addiction treatment providers, and NJAMHAA’s IT Project members. It is open to any technology company that offers a product of interest to this population.
The Educational Council was established to close the gap between theory and practice in community behavioral health; to provide opportunities for students to learn about community behavioral health and attract them to internships and careers in this field; and to promote development of the future workforce. The Council is also focused on eliminating stigma and providing input to the Governor’s Council on Mental Health Stigma for a campaign that also aims to promote behavioral health professions.
