  • Stigma Poses the Greatest Barrier to Care; Youths’ Voice Helps Solve this Problem
    • “Stigma is the most common reason why people do not seek treatment, and lack of mental health care can increase the risk of suicide,” stated Debra L. Wentz, PhD, Chair of the New Jersey Governor’s Council on Mental Health Stigma, as well as President and CEO of the New Jersey Association of Mental Health and Addiction Agencies and Executive Director of the New Jersey Mental Health Institute. While the mental health crisis has worsened for all age groups, largely due to the pandemic, the situation is particularly striking for children, youth and young adults.
