About the Presenter:

In early 2014, Chrisitna joined the local affiliate of NAMI, National Alliance on Mental Illness, a community benefit organization. Through her own lived experiences with mental health challenges, she realized the unknown value of the resources and work of NAMI. NAMI Fresno provides education, support & advocacy for all people affected by mental illness. This is provided to the community at no cost and delivered from a lived experience perspective. Christina’s efforts are focused in building partnerships and collaborating with agencies within the mental health community. She also supports mental health training and education support to law enforcement agencies, criminal justice system, local school districts to teachers, administrators and students, and our faith communities. These activities raise awareness for mental health and reduce stigma of mental illness. Prior to leadership in the non-profit sector, Christina spent over 20 years in the banking industry. Her past experience in the corporate world has been offering high levels of customer service for deposit relationships, and extensive knowledge in treasury management. She currently serves as a board member for Central Valley Children's Services Network, NAMI California, California CIT Association. She is an active member of the Maternal Wellness Coalition, Fresno County Suicide Prevention Collaborative, California Perinatal MH Collaborative, and FUSD Health & Human Services Career Pathway subcommittee. Christina is a newly appointed commissioner for the Fresno County Juvenile Justice Commission.
