SERV Centers staff honored by NJPRA

Five SERV Centers of New Jersey staff members, ranging from Senior Residential Counselor, Residential Counselor, Residential Program Manager and Coordinator, were among 13 individuals who received Recognition Awards on June 16 from the New Jersey Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association.

The awardees, all nominated by their peers, “have met stringent criteria for their exemplary practice of psychiatric rehabilitation service delivery as practitioners and supervisors.” They were honored during a breakfast held at Forsgate Country Club in Monroe.

SERV staff members honored for their achievements were Ameerah Rasheed, Residential Senior Counselor in Hudson County; Gladys Santiago, Residential Senior Counselor in Passaic County; Christy Hudnett, Residential Program Manager in Middlesex; Don Moraud, Residential Senior Counselor in Union; and Kelly Rufe, Coordinator in Mercer County.

All of the honorees now have a chance to be selected by the NJPRA Board Nominating Committee as the 2016 Practitioner and Supervisor of the Year, who will be named at the NJPRA annual conference in November.
