NJPN has two special programs specifically designed for military personnel and their families:

  • Achieving Personal Balance: Military men and women serving multiple tours experience life as a revolving door of war, home, and then back to combat. Achieving Personal Balance (APB) is a gender-specific program designed to develop and apply effective coping strategies to deal with stressors at work and home, specifically for men and women who are serving, or have served in the military.  Learn more…
  • Military Family Nights: Family communication and structure are strained with each deployment. The Military Family Nights series is based on the Strengthening Families Program, in which families practice communication skills, family meetings, effective discipline, therapeutic child play, reinforcing positive behaviors in each other, and jointly planning family activities.  Learn more…

Military programs are free to military personnel and their families through funding by NJ DMHAS. For more information about either program, or to find the statewide program location nearest to you, please call Lisa Daly, at 732.367.0611, ext.203 or email her at
