Mindy McCready makes suicide prevention PSA before death

Listen to Mindy McCready on iHeartRadio

A suicide prevention video Mindy McCready dedicated to her late boyfriend has taken on new meaning in light of the singer's own death. 

According to People.com, McCready's pal Dan "Danno" Hanks says the singer told him before her death that he would know when it was right to post the clip.  In hindsight, Hanks now says he believes she was having him produce her suicide video. 

He posted it on YouTube Sunday after McCready was found dead on the porch of her Arkansas home.  Her death came one month after her boyfriend David Wilson was found dead in the same house.  Both died of a gunshot wound to the head. 

The video features Mindy's song "I'll See You Yesterday," which was supposed to be included on her next album.  It also includes photos of McCready and Wilson, followed by contact information for suicideispreventable.org.  

Hanks tells People.com McCready told him the video was beautiful and was exactly what she wanted.  He also said the song used in the video had been helping Mindy cope with David's loss.
