Destigmatizing & Prioritizing
through community education
It should be as common to see a counselor for psychotherapy as it is to go to a general practitioner for a medical check-up. Through research, advocacy, and community efforts, behavioral health care has been made more accessible to everyone, however many barriers remain. Of those barriers, the stigma associated with mental health treatment is arguably the most notable.
NJ Recovery & Wellness places a strong emphasis on community engagement as a means of promoting wellness from within, believing wholeheartedly, that as humans are social creatures, we thrive and heal in our community groups. We engage our community through educational seminars, workshops, and events intended to destigmatize mental health conditions & substance use disorders, educate on timely and thought provoking topics in behavioral health, and providing resources to individuals, families, and local organizations that can benefit.
