Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"I am recommending Step Up for Mental Health because I feel they are doing such needed work, in my favorite city and hometown, Chicago, IL. Mental Health is still too stigmatized in our culture. We have seen how untreated mental health problems effect our world, especially with mass shootings. We don't see how families are effected by it at home. Yes..." - Lucia Garrity
