Erika Álvarez Hernández, Spanish Program Coordinator  for NAMI en Español, is living in recovery from a mental health condition that affected her life for 17 years. In 2017, when she experienced her second mental health crisis, she was introduced to NAMI at the Spanish Family WRAP support Group. She took NAMI español education classes Familia à Familia and Persona à Persona which helped her immensely on her path to recovery. She is now using her own experiences to provide invaluable services to the Spanish community as a class coordinator and teacher of Persona à Persona and Familia à Familia. She is also NAMI FaithNet Coordinator for Latino Community. She is an inspiration to us all.
