2021 Speakers

Carlos A. Larrauri, MSN, APRN, PMHNP-BC, FNP-BC, and Matthew Racher, CRPS, became friends during their schizophrenia recovery journeys. Their journeys have led them to give back to others with mental illness, through their professional work and the original music that their band, FogDog, performs at community mental health awareness events. Carlos is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, and he is concurrently pursuing a law degree from the University of Michigan Law School and a master’s degree in public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School as a Zuckerman Fellow. Matthew is a certified peer recovery specialist and works as an outreach coordinator at IDEA, a syringe exchange program in Florida. He is pursuing a Master of Social Work at Barry University in Miami Shores.

Carlos and Matt will share their stories of hope and recovery from schizophrenia and FogDog will perform original music.

The Drs. Fred and Penny Frese Lecture series honors the late Fred Frese, Ph.D., and Penny Frese, Ph.D., by sharing stories of individuals living successfully with schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses and how their loved ones support their recovery.
