Call in to speak with the host

She began as a college student, working as a Special Education intern at a Sacramento, California public school for students whose challenges ranged from autism to Down Syndrome. “I had entered college as a music major, but during my freshman year, I dealt with mental health issues of my own. It was after that experience, that I realized God had a different -- and very unexpected -- plan for my life.”
Cindy has served on the Sacramento County Mental Health Consumer Committee and Mental Health Advisory Board as well as its Older Adult Committee, which advocated for the services needed by older adults with severe mental illness. She has twice been named the Advocate of the Year for Sacramento County by the Mental Health Association.
