We can no longer turn our back on those who are too ill to care for themselves

The above title comes from a recent advocacy alert by NAMI NJ, New Jersey’s largest grassroots organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of individuals who have a serious mental illness and their families. NAMI NJ has been actively advocating for the passage of S2760, legislation which would finally allow New Jersey to join the forty-two other states with assisted outpatient treatment. We commend NAMI NJ for their dedication to those most in need.
