"Our Mission is to offer a comprehensive continuum of mental health services that promotes full participation in community life"


















Hurricane Sandy

Ocean Mental Health Services (OceanMHS) and the Ocean County Library have partnered together to offer support groups for people who are struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Many have experienced trauma during the past month in Ocean County. Loss of home, security, personal belongings and routine can have deep effects on a person’s ability to recover from the trauma. If someone is experiencing feelings of deep sadness or constant worry, having difficulties sleeping, or has a need to share their experiences they may benefit from a support group.

Support Group times and locations are as follows:
