Hope for Health Crisis Counseling

Support for Public Health Employees

The emotional well-being of public health employees during the Pandemic is as important as the well-being of the people they serve in our communities. Hope for Health is available to help. We invite all public health employees to join our discussions about the ways in which the Pandemic continues to have an impact on their physical and emotional health as well as wellness strategies to manage stress and promote healing.

The New Jersey Department of Health (NJ DOH) was awarded the CDC NJ COVID Disparities Grant to promote resilience and sustainability of the NJ DOH public health workforce as a result of the pandemic. DOH has awarded NJDHS funding for the Hope for Health project.
