Got Blue?

Creating Awareness About Depression

Through a partnership with the Mental Health Association of Essex County, Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ has established the Got Blue Collaborative, a committee whose focus is to educate the community about depression and to direct those in need to appropriate community resources.

Outreach Campaign Spreads the Message

Got Blue developed an outreach campaign which includes a website, billboards, movie theatre advertising and print materials. The materials which have been developed are an outgrowth of the campaign’s general theme “When Blue is Your Primary Color, Help is Available.”

Educating Mental Health Professionals

Last year, the Got Blue Collaborative worked with JFS to sponsor Mental Health First AID, a 12-hour evidence-based training program to educate front line personnel on mental health concerns and to provide resources on how to respond should someone be experiencing a mental health crisis.

Award Recipient

The Got Blue Collaborative is a recipient of an Ambassador Award from the NJ Governor’s Council on Mental Health Stigma for the creative efforts of the Got Blue Collaborative in addressing mental health stigma.
