Nathan Shuherk graduated from Taylor University in 2015. During college, he was diagnosed with schizophrenia which led him to start a Student’s with Disabilities club. He studied history and philosophy and was part of a national championship ethics bowl team. After college, he moved to Indianapolis to take a job in adult education at the Indianapolis Public Library system. Nathan has been connected with several NAMI groups during his moves, and he has been given a chance to be a guest speaker for NAMI events in three cities in Indiana. He started with Students With Schizophrenia in the summer of 2018 and is now Students With Schizophrenia’s Intern Coordinator with seats on both the Executive Board and Advocacy Board for the nonprofit. He is incredibly excited to be able to work with a group of people that share his vision of trying to build a future without the stigma surrounding mental illness.
