NAMI on WQED Tonight

Experience Rose's Garden: Surviving My Mother's Mental Illness

Monday, Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. on WQED's Experience

Before the Steelers play tonight on Monday Night Football, tune into WQED at 7:30 p.m. to see NAMI Southwestern PA featured on a brand new documentary about mental illness.

Experience Rose's Garden: Surviving My Mother's Mental Illness
Rose Clancy plants gardens in urban areas that could use green space. Her work brings beauty to the neighborhoods, but it also brings healing to Rose. She was raised by a mother who had a severe mental illness, and now Rose's gardens are helping her cope with memories of a troubled childhood, while raising awareness of an issue that impacts millions. This documentary focuses on how mental illness affects not only the person with the illness, but everyone in the family. It includes a visit to NAMI's Family-to-Family class in Pittsburgh. Contributing producer/reporter Beth Dolinar brings viewers a compelling 30 minute documentary as part of WQED's Experience series.
