NJAMHAA Advocacy Campaign

In the fall of 2021, NJAMHAA launched a new campaign, Diverse Faces…Many Lives: New Jerseyans Rely on Mental Health and Substance Use Services to Thrive, to underscore that thousands of children, youth, adults and seniors, representing every racial, ethnic and cultural group, need to be able to access the services they need to recover from mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Additional funding for these services is required to make this access possible.

NJAMHAA’s recent advocacy piece, Building a Bridge to a Better Future, reinforces the need for the community behavioral system to be sufficiently funded in order to continue to serve as the safety net for New Jersey’s most vulnerable residents of all ages throughout the many systemic changes taking place and beyond. It highlights the messages we have been communicating about the transition to fee-for-service, as well as advocacy points that specifically relate to adult mental health, substance use and children’s service providers.
