We have seen a rise in mental health concerns over the last few years and it is essential now, more than ever, that we tackle this issue together.
For that reason, this year, as part of Union County Commissioner Chairman Sergio Granados’ 2023 initiatives, we will be introducing a series of initiatives that will enhance access to mental health services, called “Stepping Up to Mental Health.”
Mental Health can affect anyone reading this, and it is not a topic that we should be ashamed of speaking about – it is a subject that we should bring awareness to and let our residents know that they are not alone and we are here to help them.
From suicide prevention training to programs connecting individuals living with a substance abuse disorder to treatment and recovery – we are putting our residents health first.
There will be community resources for those seeking treatment and there will be information for concerned friends or family who want to learn more about these supportive services.
Below you will find a number of organizations to reach out to for more information or call our Human Services Action Line at 908-527-4847 or email DHSAction@ucnj.org.
