Thursdays with NAMI – 7 p.m. September 9, 2021

Sandra Rogers grew up thinking she was stupid because that’s what she was told. She attended eight different grammar schools and was held back three times before dropping out altogether. She watched her mother struggle with alcohol and drugs, and at times they lived in a car.

Then something happened when Sandra went to night school. Someone encouraged her to keep going, and even asked if she was interested in college. Today the Cary resident has several degrees, including a master’s in child psychology. She is a mother, writer, and NAMI program leader. She lives with bipolar disorder, although it has been in remission for a while. She is planning to publish a book about two of her children; both sons went to Iraq, and both recognized that they had mental health challenges.

Join us to hear Sandra’s story of perseverance and hope.

Thursdays with NAMI starts at 7pm and is free and open to all. Join us via Facebook Live or click here to register to participate via Zoom and to view the schedule for future sessions.
