NAMI NJ Support to Veterans
NAMI New Jersey’s focus for veterans support is educating its members and the mental health community on veterans and their families’ unique needs and culture, supporting veterans and/or their families with serious mental illnesses, and working in cooperation and coordination with New Jersey State and Federal Veterans Affairs leadership to advocate for veteran services.
NAMI NJ volunteers maintain a very close working relationship with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs in New Jersey (VANJ) on mental illness issues for veterans, military, and families. NAMI NJ is an active member of the VANJ Veterans Advisory Council (VAC), which provides Veterans’ patient related input and recommendations to the Assistant Chief of Staff for Mental Health Services. NAMI NJ is also working with the New Jersey Department of Veterans and Military Affairs (DMAVA) to support National Guard members and families.
