The Birth of the American Mental Health Alliance-New
(excerpted from a piece originally written Nov.,1996 and an important part of our history)
AMHA-NJ was a natural outgrowth of the New Jersey Coalition of Mental Health Professionals & Consumers which had its inception in the fall of 1994. In reaction to managed care organizations threatening the privacy, confidentiality, and freedom of choice of our clients, we began to realize that we needed to offer the public and our professional colleagues an alternative to managed care.
Having researched the alternatives across the country, we found a developing organization in Boston, Mass., which fit the bill perfectly. We met with their principals during the summer of 1995 and returned to New Jersey with a commitment to explore the possibilities with other professionals who might be interested in joining forces. By the summer of 1996 we had developed a committed and working steering committee. In Boston, during the late summer of 1996, with other interested representatives from states across the country, we convened for our first national meeting. It was at this meeting that the representative states co-founded the National American Mental Health Alliance.
Toward the end of 1996 we had organized in NJ as a Nonprofit Corporation to be operated as a cooperative under Subchapter T of the Internal Revenue Code, and we were part of what was to become the AMHA-USA. We are now functioning under a legal set of by-laws and ready to begin doing business in NJ.
