NJ Veterans Diversion Program & Assistance Program.

Updated: Nov 13, 2022

The NJ VDP offers eligible servicemembers with mental illnesses suspected of committing an eligible offense a path away from the criminal justice system. The purpose of the program is to provide those who have served or are serving our country and suffering from mental illness the help they need. By routing eligible servicemembers with mental illness(es) suspected or charged with eligible offenses through existing community and government-based resources, we hope to serve those who have served our country.


New Jersey Veterans Assistance Program

The Judiciary’s Veteran’s Assistance Program is not a diversion program. Court staff can refer veterans directly to their local veterans service office. Veterans can receive mental health counseling, addiction services, legal services, housing assistance, and mentoring. The program is voluntary. Speak to court staff if you are interested in this program.
