Advocacy Resources

NJAMHAA's current advocacy piece, Invest in a Healthy New Jersey, 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 specif-ically relate to adult mental health, substance use and children’s service providers. 

Innovating for Progress, Partnering for Solutions, NJAMHAA's current identity piece, illustrates the tremendous benefits that NJAMHAA members provide through the quality and effectiveness of services that save lives and greatly enhance quality of life. The publication also highlights the fiscal value of these services by being cost-effective; preventing the need for much higher-cost healthcare services and other consequences of lack of or delayed treatment; and contributing directly to the state’s economy through employment, purchases, taxes and fees.
