    Speak Your Mind NJSo many people have been affected by the mis-management of outpatient mental health care. In order to continue to make our case in court, to the insurance companies, and to the decision-makers who buy the insurance (the State Health Benefit Plan, or corporate benefits departments), we need to compile data on how many people are being harmed and how much money is being wasted. The NJ Psychological Association's Insurance Complaint Registry is the best way to give us this data, and to tell your story. We are also looking for people willing to tell their story more publicly. We can offer various levels of anonymity, so if you think you'd like to help out by adding your story to our campaign, be sure to click "Yes" in answer to the "May we contact you" question. We are also interested in the experience of people who have worked for mental health managed care companies and these stories, too, can be registered. We always offer anonymity to anyone who desires it. Remember, one of our bedrock beliefs is in protecting your privacy! StatewideSpeak Your Mind NJSpeak Your Mind NJ
