Let’s team up for NAMIWalks Your Way 2022! Join our team or support us with a donation. Together, we can do something powerful about achieving Mental Health for All! 

CAMHOP, a program of NAMI New Jersey, is a community-based program in NJ dedicated to offering support and education for Chinese American families affected by mental illness. For 19 years we have listened, comforted and supported caregivers and individuals from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the Chinese Diaspora as they cope with the complex and traumatic issues related to mental illness. Please support this valuable work so we can keep doing this and do it better! 

In the past 12 months, because of YOUR continued support and donations, CAMHOP has been able to provide the following services during the pandemic to the Chinese American Community in NJ and beyond - ALL SERVICES ARE FREE OF CHARGE.

 - 85 online support group meetings were conducted virtually, with 5 peer support meetings and 2 family support meetings on a monthly basis, with 12 trained facilitators (individuals with lived experience and family caregivers);

 - Phone/Email referral services to help families navigate the mental health system and related resources;

- Graduating 15 Chinese American family members from a robust NAMI Family-to-Family Course with cultural adaptation and translation into Chinese language;

 - Periodic E-Newsletters with resources, community event information, and scientific updates;

 - Community educational webinars in Chinese language; 

 - Sponsorship for peers with lived experience of mental illness to stay on NAMI NJ membership;

 - Scholarships for members to attend NAMI NJ Annual Conference and Annual Meeting;

 - Program volunteers have received recognition for the amazing work that they did;

 - Holiday caring e-cards were emailed out to households whom we serve;

 - Collaborate with agencies to advocate for AAPI community in face of anti-Asian hate crimes;
