We mourn the loss of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, who passed away today at the age of 96. Mrs. Carter's legacy will endure through her unwavering dedication to humanitarian causes & passionate advocacy for mental health.

“Rosalynn Carter was at the forefront in efforts to get mental health care for those who needed it. She brought political bipartisanship in working for equality for all and recognizing the contributions of women. Mrs. Carter was a wonderful soulmate to her husband. Their work together through The Carter Center in support of democracy and human rights has changed lives across the world.” - Lynda Johnson Robb 

“Rosalynn Carter courageously walked onto our nation’s conscience the need to address mental health when many were unaware and unconcerned. The world has lost a gentle heroine for millions of families. My family has lost a precious friend, and heaven has welcomed a saint home.” - Luci Baines Johnson
