NJAMHAA's FY2025 Campaign, Diverse Faces: All Are Worthy of Full Investment
In January 2024, NJAMHAA launched a new campaign, Diverse Faces: All Are Worthy of Full Investment. It features several compelling examples of how behavioral healthcare and support services — and the workforce who provide them — enable New Jersey's diverse residents to lead the most fulfilling lives possible. It also illustrates the need for substantially increased funding and legislation to ensure that everyone receives the treatment and support they need to recover from mental illnesses and substance use disorders and achieve wellness and other goals.
This campaign builds on previous, successful campaigns, Diverse Faces, Partners in Care and Diverse Faces, Many Lives: New Jerseyans Rely on Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment Services to Thrive.
