Mental Health and Substance Abuse Task Force

The Mental Health and Substance Abuse Task Force is working to take the stigma out of mental illness, decrease the number of young people who are consuming alcohol and using substances, decrease the number of adults engaging in binge drinking and make mental health and substance abuse resources available. Task force members also develop and distribute educational materials.

Responding to a Mental Health Crisis

The CHIP of Bergen County partnered with local law enforcement officers, mental health providers and advocates, planning and media specialists to produce a community health message on how to effectively respond to a mental health crisis. The video shows what can happen when a person experiences a mental health crisis and how family members, police and mental health screeners respond to the crisis.
