Tribute to Sylvia
NAMI New Jersey celebrates Sylvia Axelrod’s legacy as our Executive Director for over 25 years! As our first Executive Director Sylvia has taken the organization from a fledgling all-volunteer association to the state’s largest grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. During that time Sylvia has developed programs that have made NAMI NJ a state and national leader in providing support, education, advocacy and combating stigma. Most of all she has demonstrated a warmth and humanity that has touched the lives of thousands of New Jerseyans whose lives have been affected by a mental illness.
