Presentation at Mayor's Wellness Fair

November 16, 2019

The Healthy Right team participated in the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign Wellness Resource Fair at the Jefferson Township Senior Center. The Healthy Right team set up a table with flyers and was able to meet and interact with many members of the community. The Healthy Right team prepared a slideshow presentation educating viewers about substance misuse. Healthy Right also had the pleasure of including Ms. Susan Woomer in their presentation, who shared her personal story with substance misuse and left a lasting impression on the audience. Those who attended were educated, engaged, and now have a desire to make change. 

Quarantine Zoom Meetings

Throughout the pandemic, the Healthy Right team has stayed engaged with the youth of Morris County through monthly Zoom meetings, which included mental health discussions, fundraising, and created a general support system throughout the school year for students who were struggling. Over 40 students have joined the Healthy Right team in educating themselves and their peers about the importance of mental health and how critical support is during unprecedented times.

Krispy Kreme Fundraiser

May 22, 2021

Healthy Right sold Krispy Kreme donuts by the dozens in order to raise money for our organization! Donuts were distributed at our May 22nd Social Event, where we got to meet our members in person while enjoying delicious snacks, participated in stress management activities, and ate our donuts. The event was a huge success and was a great way to meet everyone for the first time all year!

Mental Health Boxes

At Healthy Right, we recognized the impact of COVID-19 when it strained many people's mental health. The team decided to take action and started the Mental Health Boxes Project. The team collected donations such as candles, stress balls, coloring books, and many other items that relieve stress. Team members used all of the donations to assemble hundreds of mental health kits to relieve anxiety. These boxes were then hand-delivered to the Mental Health Association of Essex and Morris County and Saint Clare's Denville Hospital. The boxes were given to patients with COVID-19. In total, over 350 boxes were assembled and delivered, and since then this campaign has become a yearly tradition in our organization.

More Events and Future Events

Additionally, we have remained active in our community by participating in events such as the Night of Conversation Opioid Education at the Mountain Lakes YMCA. We have advocated on the local level through a meeting with the Jefferson Township Board of Education and on the state level through a meeting with Nancy Munoz, politician in the New Jersey General Assembly. We are very grateful to be able to spread our message and learn from others and we are excited for future events and growth as an organization. Check out our upcoming events for more!
