Fifteen years ago, when Brian Belt was diagnosed with schizophrenia and substance abuse disorder, his mother reached out to the Columbia County chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMICC) for support. The community and resources she found there gave her strength as she and her son navigated a long, hard road.
“During the worst phase of my life, the NAMI Family Support Group helped her get through all the chaos I was bringing into her life,” Belt recalled in a recent interview.
