Board & Senior Management

The Mental Health Association of Essex and Morris is able to fulfill its mission of service to individuals and families whose lives are affected by mental illness in large part because of the ongoing support of many individuals and organizations. All of our volunteers share our commitment to compassionate treatment, effective advocacy and the ultimate eradication of stigma. Led by our dedicated volunteer Board of Directors who serve as our Ambassadors to the community, the Mental Health Association has been at the forefront of the community mental health movement for more than sixty years.
