Tribute to Sylvia


NAMI New Jersey will celebrate 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.

This reception, by invitation only, will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at the Ramada Plaza Conference Center, 390 Forsgate Drive, Monroe Township, NJ 08831.

NAMI NJ will print a journal for this special occasion. You are invited to support the Tribute Journal by placing an advertisement or message in it. Advertising rates and event support details are available in the Tribute to Sylvia Sponsorship Form.”
