Starting Today - A New Helpline

Mental health is something we care deeply about in Morris Plains. We are a stigma free community and we will once again be offering Youth Mental Health First Aid training in the upcoming year, through our Municipal Alliance grant from the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Service (DHMAS). This new hotline, which has a chat option, is another step in keeping our citizens safe. 

In light of making help more accessible, whether for mental health, suicide or drug crisis, please take a minute to share the 988 helpline to friends and family. It may help one person.

Thank you.

- Jason Karr, Mayor
