News Health: The director of South Carolina’s Department of Mental Health is giving up the post he’s held for two years, officials said.

Spokeswoman Tracy LaPointe said the agency would release further details later.

Dr. Kenneth Rogers, a psychiatrist hired to run the agency in April 2020, announced last Thursday at an executive session of a meeting of the Mental health Commission that he would be leaving the department effective Nov. 1, The State reported.

Rogers emailed agency staff Friday shortly after The State reported news of his resignation, to announce his pending departure and thank them for their support.

Commission Chairman Greg Pearce said the board was surprised by Rogers’ announcement and had not asked him to resign.

“I certainly hold him in very, very high regard and am very disappointed that he’s leaving at this time,” he said.
