NJ Mental Health Cares Helpline

NJMentalHealthCares is New Jersey’s mental health information and referral service. Our staff of mental health professionals uses their experience and understanding of the mental health system to provide callers to information and connect them to the mental health and services they need, such as: legal, housing, employment, rehabilitation, inpatient and outpatient, self help and more.

The Mental Health Association in New Jersey’s New Jersey MentalHealthCares Helpline also began to accept calls during its regular hours (weekdays, 8 am to 8 pm) to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The average answer time for a call is 15 seconds or less.
