Multicultural Mental Health Awareness in New Jersey

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

The New Jersey Chapter Association of Black Psychologists (NJABPsi), the Latino Mental Health Association of New Jersey (LMHANJ), and the New Jersey Psychological Association (NJPA) present two workshops to shine a light on Multicultural Health Awareness in New Jersey. Rutgers University is graciously sponsoring the venue for this important event. As the Inter-Mental Health and Psychological Associations Coalition (IMPAC), NJABPsi, LMHANJ, NJPA join together as equal partners to contribute their unique educational acumen, expertise, experience, and perspectives to obtain synergy as a resource to promote equality in mental health care and to zealously advocate for the mental health needs for the diverse population of the state of New Jersey. This will be accomplished by our respective organizations working together to develop initiatives to educate the public, as well as healthcare providers through training, professional presentations and mobilizing resources as needed to provide counseling and psychological services under emergent circumstances. This is the first of many multicultural events, with the hope that our organizational collaboration will grow to include additional diverse organizations in the future.
