Heather McCready's New Single

"I am glad mental health is becoming a topic in the news. That is a step in the right direction. However, we need to change the subject. We need to hear treated voices and talk about mental health during the silence and not the storm." Heather McCready

Heather McCready is passionate about mental health due to being a treated bipolar woman for over 10 years. She lost her aunt and cousin to suicide and soon after began her public crusade to silence the stigmas. Heather says, "The stigmas will stop when people will talk." She even has this as a slogan on T-Shirts available for sale in her store. Heather also said, "I am glad mental health is becoming a topic in the news. That is a step in the right direction. However, we need to change the subject. We need to hear treated voices and talk about mental health during the silence and not the storm."

Heather sang on "Good Day Dallas" http://www.myfoxdfw.com/category/233373/good-day and released a new single in honor of the fundraiser she is Chairing for Mental Health America called "Peppers and Pinatas" tonight. The event will raise money for MHATC's Peer Support Program which meets a great need in the lives of many people with mental health illnesses in the community.
