NJAMHAA VP Shares her Suicide Survival to Help Others, Reinforces Need for Increased Funding

January 31, 2024

Shauna Moses, NJAMHAA's Vice President, Public Affairs and Member Services, shares her stories as a survivor of suicide with the goal of encouraging others to open up about their struggles, seek help and choose life.

"There are so many success stories out there. However, not everyone is fortunate to receive life-enhancing - and, in many cases, life-saving - behavioral healthcare services because of the workforce crisis and other barriers, such as stigma and lack of parity in insurance plans," Moses said.

"The workforce crisis, in particular, and the limited funding for provider organizations that primarily serve Medicaid beneficiaries are the focus of NJAMHAA's new campaign. In Diverse Faces: All Are Worthy of Full Investment, we share several success stories that were made possible by behavioral health treatment and support services - and especially the dedicated staff who provide them," Moses said. "We urge all government leaders, as well as members of the public, to view the campaign publication and video to gain the full sense of what these services mean for children, youth and adults throughout our state. We hope these compelling stories lead to significantly increased funding in the FY2025 State Budget."
