NJPA Graduate Students (NJPAGS)
"I joined NJPA as a graduate student in 2011. Throughout my time as a general member and as part of the NJPAGS board, I have learned a great deal about leadership, unity, and professionalism. The connections I've made and the experiences I acquired from membership in NJPA have enriched my graduate school training and prepared me for future success in the field of psychology. I am beyond grateful that I became a member of such a remarkable, professional organization." ~ Stacie D. Shivers, PsyD

NJPAGS provides opportunities for student leadership development and facilitates dialogue between NJPAGS members and members of the professional community.

Mental Health Problems Affect Everyone
*Myth: Mental problems don't affect me.
Fact: Mental health problems are actually very common. In 2014, about:
- One in five American adults experienced a mental health issue
- One in 10 young people experienced a period of major depression
- One in 25 Americans lived with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. It accounts for the loss of more than 41,000 American lives each year, more than double the number of lives lost to homicide.
