August 25 – NAMI Speakers Series – Katie Feick

Schizoaffective disorder – a combination of schizophrenia and a mood disorder – is a particularly mean affliction. Many sufferers have anosognosia – the sincere delusion that they are not sick. Katie Feick suffers from schizoaffective disorder. Now, in solid recovery, she works part time as a physical therapist in acute care at OSU. She is also a mental health advocate with NAMI Franklin County, NAMI Ohio, ADAMH Franklin County, Mental Health America Franklin County, and the Columbus Police Crisis Intervention Team training. She is a living example that recovery is possible even for those with the most severe disorders. She’ll be talking about her experience before recovery, her recovery, and her very productive life thereafter.
