NAMI Southern Arizona Board Member
Eric D. Stark is the Community Resources Liaison for Banner University Family Care’s Office of Individual and Family Affairs. He serves as mentor helping members and their families to learn how to more effectively advocate and navigate the behavioral health system. He also helps members find the community resources to help them meet their recovery goals and move forward on their own journey of discovery. Eric came to sunny Arizona by way of the wilds of New Jersey. He holds a law degree from the Dickinson School of Law and is a graduate of the Masters of Social Work program at ASU School of Social Work Tucson Campus.

In addition, he is a public speaker who shares his own inspirational story of overcoming mental health challenges to not only survive but also thrive. In his copious amounts of spare time, Eric enjoys juggling and balloon twisting, though he would prefer to teach others these very learnable skills instead of just being the recipient of praise and accolades.
