Our Goal:  We assist underserved populations, such as inner-city students, children with Asperger's, and the elderly in need; make contributions to the Training Psychology Graduate Students Fund for student-initiated research addressing psychological issues and students working in innovative family, school, and community projects; promote public education programs that include topical issues such violence and bullying prevention.

Take Someone Out to The Ball Game for Mental Health Month!

The NJPA Foundation has partnered with the Somerset Patriots for “A Night at the Ballpark”, in honor of Mental Health Month at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, NJ, Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 7:05 p.m.

This special event, a first for the association, is an all-inclusive opportunity for NJPA members and their families to come out, mix and mingle and have some fun, all while supporting the Foundation and its mission to cater to the underserved populations in the communities in which we work and live.  What a great way to recognize the importance of mental health month and kickoff the unofficial start to summer!

The baseball game includes an opportunity for you or a family member to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, participate in in-between innings fun like dizzy bat and musical chairs and the chance to lead the crowd in the traditional singing of “Take Me out to the Ball Game”.  The game will conclude with a fireworks display worthy of any 4th of July celebration! Current NJPA Sustaining Members and their families will be able to meet, take pictures with and get autographs from former New York Yankees World Series Champion and Patriots Manager Emeritus, Sparky Lyle.

Tickets are $10.00 each and all proceeds go directly to supporting the programs of the NJPA Foundation. 

If you’re not able to attend, please consider making a donation to support the Foundation's mission of providing training and research opportunities to graduate students.
