Mental Health Board Logo

The mission of the Sussex County Mental Health Board is to promote access to and availability of efficient, adequate, integrated health care services for adults with serious mental health and/or substance use disorders and for children and adolescents with emotional, behavioral and mental health disorders. To accomplish this mission, the Mental Health Board embraces the following principles for health planning:

  1. Consumer-focused Services
  2. Individualized Care
  3. Wellness and Recovery Model
  4. Evidenced-based Practices
  5. Cultural Competence

One current goal of the Mental Health Board is to promote the Change Direction Campaign to recognize and respond to the five signs of emotional suffering.

Presentations of local mental health services and options are presented at monthly meetings.

The Sussex County Mental Health Board is always looking for new members. Members must live in Sussex County, be a consumer of mental health services or a family member of a consumer with an interest in advocating for mental health services in the County, or a mental health professional not employed by a treatment provider.

The Mental Health Board meets on the third Thursday of each month. The next meeting will be on June 20, 2019, at 3:30 p.m. in the Freeholder Meeting Room at the Sussex County Administrative Center, One Spring Street, Newton, NJ. Please join us and consider adding your voice to advocate for mental health in Sussex County.
