What is 4U NJ 1st and how did it come about?

4U NJ 1st is a helpline provided through a grant from the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General's Division of Criminal Justice with services provided by UMDNJ/UBHC and a partnership between the New Jersey Disaster Critical Incident Stress Response (NJDCISR) and the UMDNJ/UBHC.
