As mental health is rapidly becoming a leading issue across our nation, the YMCA is at the forefront of a critical initiative designed to address mental health issues called the Community Mental Health Initiative.

The Community Mental Health Initiative is designed to educate the community on mental illness through workshops, educational seminars, resource material and Mental Health First Aid training.  As educations becomes more prevalent, conversations become more common and our community gains knowledge on this topic, the stigma that is associated  with mental illness will become less, and individuals experiencing distress will be more likely to seek help.

If you have interest in learning more or getting involved, please contact Tracy Crane at or 908-889-8880.
