TRENTON — The state Department of Human Services is contracting the Mental Health Association in New Jersey to train and assist peer support workers at 30 wellness centers across almost every county that provide mental health services.

DHS Commissioner Sarah Adelman announced the $375,000 program's launch in a release Wednesday, calling it the Whole Health Learning Collaborative, with a focus on best practices for self-management for center peers and members.

The "target population," according to DHS, includes those with mental health diagnoses, plus those who may also have a co-occurring substance use disorder or chronic medical condition, whether they be members or providers.
