Jennifer Carter grew up in Mill Valley with her two sisters and Mom and Dad. After high school, she went to College of Marin and then to San Francisco State.
 
When she was 23, she moved to Hawaii where she got married and a year later, at the age of 26, had her daughter, Sierra. After her child was born, Jennifer suffered from postpartum depression that turned into psychosis and was eventually diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Since moving back to Marin and enduring many trials with her mental health, Jennifer works in and supports the Mental Health Peer Movement. Today, she enjoys her life very much and is loving living near her family again. Join us in hearing her powerful journey of hope and recovery and her message that You Are Not Alone. 

This event asks that all guests wear a mask and keep a safe distance of at least six feet from others. Thank you!
