Brandon experienced his first psychotic episode right after his freshman year in college. It was a difficult journey. But his treatment and therapy, along with the love of his family, have helped him enormously – and now he is helping others. Happily married, he is also the Director of Marketing and Communications for both the Staglin Family Vineyard and IMHRO/One Mind Institute, as well as a webcast producer, blogger, and public speaker. Brandon is the recipient of many awards, including the SAMHSA Lifetime Achievement VOICE Award.
