Established in 1959 as Ocean Mental Health Services, the agency has a long history of providing counseling and addiction services to the residents of Ocean County. What was once a single office with only two counselors has grown to an agency with a staff of over 425, ten locations throughout Ocean County, a school, several partial day program locations, and numerous outreach and community programs. Since our first expansion 1961 into our office site on Lien Street, our growth has always responded to the community’s needs.
As the needs of the community evolved, so has our organization. To convey the breadth of services we provide and the compassion and experience behind those services, Ocean Mental Health Services is now Bright Harbor Healthcare. Our current programs are available to adults, children, and families. We provide counseling for depression, anxiety disorders, and other mental health issues, addiction services, group homes, partial day services, a private school for children with emotional and behavioral challenges, and more. We also work with family members to create an atmosphere of support and understanding. Our ultimate goal is to help each individual we serve to live the life they envision for themselves.

Bright Harbor Healthcare will continue to grow to meet the ever-changing needs of the community. Because of the generous support of that community, we have become the organization we are today. Bright Harbor Healthcare was built and sustained in the early years through community fundraisers. The Bright Harbor Foundation is at the forefront of our fundraising efforts. Over the years, our agency has received numerous donations and gifts, which has allowed us to serve the community better. We have also received generous grants and continued support from the private sector, local and state governments, and volunteers. This has made it possible for us to provide our services to the community consistently.
We look forward to our continued collaboration with these benefactors. Together, we will enable the mental and overall health of the community we serve to thrive.
At Bright Harbor Healthcare, we aim to offer a comprehensive continuum of mental health, drug and alcohol services, and integrated healthcare services to promote full participation in community life.
We rededicate ourselves to this mission daily as we address the mental health needs of the residents of Ocean County and beyond. Our extensive services assist people throughout the behavioral healthcare continuum. This includes not only those individuals and families dealing with long-term severe mental health illnesses and addictions but also those who want to address specific behaviors, emotions, and feelings. We provide the support and guidance individuals need as they dedicate themselves to wellness and recovery. Together, we can build a better tomorrow.
Our vision is that our community understands the coordination of behavioral healthcare, substance abuse recovery, and physical healthcare, which are essential to overall health. We want to instill confidence that our quality, patient-centric services will assist them in achieving wellness and healing.
When people think of good health, they often only consider their physical needs. At Bright Harbor Healthcare, we strive to bring the discussion of your mental health needs to the forefront while integrating our services to promote total wellness and recovery. We want to raise community awareness by sharing our understanding of issues like stress, anxiety, and depression, the impact they can have on your life, and your ability to achieve fulfillment. We also offer drug and alcohol services for those who want to address substance use and related physical health issues affecting their mental health recovery.
The effects of mental illness are individualized and complex. Through counseling, guidance, and support, we identify each individual’s unique goals and help them to work toward achieving them. At Bright Harbor Healthcare, we understand that excellence doesn’t only come from mastery of knowledge but also from compassion, dedication, and respect. Understanding each person’s individual needs is our first step toward excellence.
