 Nominating Period Opens for the SHAFIQ Award

NJPRA founding member and leader in psychiatric rehabilitation, Mohammad Shafiq,  passed away in 2014. Shafiq worked at Fountain House originally, then was part of the group of Fountain House staff who brought the Clubhouse Model to New Jersey in the early 1970's. He then worked at St. Clare's for a period of time in Transitional Services, before founding Harbor House at St. Joseph's Hospital in Paterson.

Shafiq was a member of the NJPRA Board of Directors from its inception, served several years as Board President, and was a recipient of the Mort Gati Award. He retired to Pakistan, but stayed in touch with various Board members over the years. Shafiq was a very vocal advocate for persons experiencing mental illness, for the Clubhouse model and psychiatric rehabilitation. He brought energy and true dedication to the field and we honor his memory wiht the Annual Shafiq Award which highlights exemplary practice and provision of services in psychiatric rehabilitation here in New Jersey and is bestowed on the awardee at the Annual Conference in November.
