Community & Behavioral Health Services in Morris County

In light of the recent tragedies that took place at the Supermarket in Buffalo, NY and the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, we would like to take a moment to acknowledge the impact this has on our Community. Whether the recent tragedies impacted us mentally, physically, and/or emotionally we must be mindful that acknowledging our reactions and caring for ourselves is important in the healing process. While we are still dealing with a global pandemic, the recent incidents continue to bring increased feelings of anxiety, fear, and stress. We are all going through this together, as a Morris County Community! Please remember to care for yourself, staff, and consumers during these trying times.

Here are some resources that can be shared with all:
