I will be doing a 10-City Tour across Montana this spring, sharing my story of recovery and songs of hope. It will take place in the last half of April and into early May. More details to follow soon as we will announce the tour stops and sponsors.
We recently had an amazing event with 700 audience members. Entitled "The Experience & Science of Mental Illness", the event was in Bozeman, Montana. I sang and spoke about my experience with mental illness and a great man, Dr. Matt Byerly, spoke about advancements in science surrounding mental illness. The event was presented by The Center for Mental Health Research & Recovery at Montana State University. I am very excited about the Center as it is bringing research and recovery options to Montana. When we give people options, we give people hope. I am just glad to be a part of all of this goodness.
I just accepted the Lionel Aldridge Champions Award from NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). I have to say that this honor and the evening spent speaking and singing for NAMI's National Convention has been the best night of my life. It is hard to find the words to express how honored and happy I felt. I know in my heart that this is just the beginning. Thank you to the audience for being so amazing. I love you all.
