The Mental Health Association in New Jersey’s Intensive Family Support Services (IFSS) is a county-wide support program for families of relatives with mental illness.

Throughout New Jersey, many families take an active role in care for a relative who has mental illness. This can be an especially difficult and challenging task. IFSS provides tangible coping skills to address these challenges. IFSS is open to all Union County Families with a relative with mental illness; the family member does not have to be in treatment for the family to receive services. IFSS was designed with extensive input and assistance from families caring for relatives with a long history of serious mental illness. See our calendar below.
