My name is Kay Uimari, and I am the primary content developer for Rose-Minded! I created this website in 2017 to help me find ways to cope and help others. I have a bachelor of science in psychology with a concentration in forensic psychology and am currently in my master's program to become a licensed clinical social worker. 

I started my journey as a suicide prevention hotline worker for a local county hotline, gained experience as a behavior interventionist for youth with developmental disabilities, and found my passion for combining psychology and social work as a Mental Health Recovery Specialist. I have experience as an MSW student therapist intern with adults with serious mental illness (SMI) and in correctional settings, like a women's prison re-entry program and local jails. I have facilitated and co-facilitated educational and therapeutic groups and classes for adults with SMI and traumatic brain injuries. 

Next in my journey is working on a mobile crisis team, assisting local law enforcement in behavioral health crises to reduce violent outcomes and provide safe resource referrals. When I began this site in 2017, I was writing lifestyle articles (some oldies you can tell are pre-bachelor era) and volunteering at the hotline, dreaming of one day being on the mobile team we contacted to go out to the client. Now I get to be on the frontlines serving my community, and the website is growing with me as I grow professionally.


I have my own experiences with mental illness and am happy to share openly and transparently within my boundaries with anyone who needs peer support. I also love connecting others to resources, advocating for others, and promoting social justice and healthy community environments, including promoting organizational and community change. 


Carly Mattern

Hello, everybody! Carly is my name and I am Rose-Minded's new communications manager. My sweet summer, sister of the famous Morty, is a dog that Kay rescued and brought home. I am her dog mom!


With the ultimate goal of becoming a pediatric intensive care unit nurse, I have completed all of my prerequisites for nursing school and am waiting to apply to various programs. Helping those in need is my life's passion.


Because I have struggled with my own mental health since I was a young teen, mental health is so important to me. I definitely consider myself an advocate for the mental health community in order to increase awareness and provide more resources to those in need
