Hearing Voices

Providence, RI – Try to imagine the excitement of those final days as a high school senior as you anticipate your first days in college when, if all goes well, the world opens up in front of your eyes, your days filled with the excitement of new intellectual and social challenges. And then, in the middle of it all you have another new, unbidden, discovery: intrusive voices telling you things you don't want to hear and can't possibly understand voices that fundamentally change your path in life. Indeed, that's the path that led Adam Alt to share his beliefs.

Adam Alt is enrolled in classes at the Community College of Rhode Island, where he is studying accounting. Alt attended Washington University in St. Louis and the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. He is actively involved with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in their Inside Mental Illness Program. Alt lives with his wife in Providence.
