NJMHI Featured in Behavioral Healthcare Executive as a "Model for States to Advance Behavioral Healthcare"
Debra L. Wentz, PhD, Executive Director of NJMHI and President and CEO of the New Jersey Association of Mental Health and Addiction Agencies (NJAMHSS), was interviewed for a feature on NJMHI in the November 2, 2023 issue of Behavioral Healthcare Executive.
"The New Jersey Mental Health Institute represents a particularly important model for the future. Once developed by the Institute, trainings, practices, and tools can be applied immediately by the members of NJAMHAA to improve the quality and outcome of behavioral healthcare for NJ residents. These products also can be made available to residents of other states and even internationally. The exceedingly long delay between development and application can be reduced dramatically. Clearly, we need much more innovation of this type to address our current workforce crisis." Ron Manderscheid, PhD, is the former president and CEO of NACBHDD and NARMH, as well as an adjunct professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the USC School of Social Work.
