Family Connections is the Essex County Hub for New Jersey Statewide Student Support Services (NJ4S). NJ4S-Essex services are all about strengthening the social, emotional, and mental health of local students, their parents, and their educators.
Now more than ever, students deserve support. Social, emotional and mental health are key to student safety, wellness and success.
Our team of 50+ prevention and mental health professionals are specially trained in the latest Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs) and have lived experience in Essex’s diverse cultures, languages, and communities. We serve all Essex public school students, with a special focus on 6th-12th grade students in underserved, high-need communities.
