About Us

The New Jersey Partners began in 1999 when seven New Jersey professionals met with representatives of four other states as part of a national training effort to build state and local coalitions. The focus was on the needs of older adults with a mental health or substance abuse problem.

As the New Jersey Partners has grown over the years, we have incorporated and obtained 501 (c) 3 status to further strengthen our organization.

Throughout the year, the New Jersey Partners hosts meetings at various locations across the state. Each meeting focuses on a specific topic of interest related to older adults, mental health and substance abuse. The  meetings provide access to the latest information and resources available in New Jersey, and are a great opportunity to network with others who share similar concerns.
