Pathways to Success

The Mental Health Association in New Jersey’s (MHANJ’s) Pathways to Success assists New Jersey adults impacted by opioids (including individuals and their family members) overcome barriers to finding gainful, long-term employment. Pathways to Success offers a wide range of services, including intensive non-clinical vocational case management, client assistance, employment hard and soft skills training, opportunities for professional certifications and individual and scheduled online group support. We are pleased to provide this program in Ocean County. We are honored to partner with Prevention Links to provide this program in Middlesex County and partner with Hope Sheds Light to provide this program in Monmouth County. It is free to eligible residents of these counties.

Launched in July 2019, 100% of participants of the Mental Health Association in New Jersey’s Pathways to Success Program received supportive services, individualized employment assistance, free training and credentialing and recovery support.

Pathways to Success participants interested in working in the field of behavioral health may be eligible to enroll in the Power of Peers (POP) internship program, a comprehensive educational and credentialing path that prepares individuals to work in New Jersey as Certified Peer Specialists (CPRS) and/or Recovery Support Practitioners (CRSP).
