AACT-NOW! African American Community Takes New Outreach Worldwide
AACT-NOW! (African American Community Takes New Outreach Worldwide) is an exciting initiative of NAMI New Jersey to connect with NJ’s African-American families affected by mental illness, mental health consumers, the faith community and mental health professionals to provide culturally competent support, education and advocacy. AACT-NOW! goals are to dispel the misconceptions surrounding mental illness and to create an anti-stigma environment for those seeking treatment.
This is an African American self-help support group for family members with loved ones affected by mental illness. In a caring and supportive environment, families will help one another learn to cope with the effects of mental illness.
