“Make It OK” is a national campaign and part of Iowa’s Healthiest State Initiative with focus areas on individuals, communities, and workplaces. The campaign provides resources and curriculum for better understanding mental illness and assists people with communication skills to reduce stigma to support those around us to live their best life. 
“Make It OK” is here to help educate Iowans and get the conversations going. Take the online pledge to stand up to mental illness stigma in Iowa, then start by learning what a mental illness really is. Also, find out what to say and not to say when someone opens up to you.  You can additionally help others by sharing your own story to help people know they aren’t alone. In the 50-minute, virtual presentation you will: 

  • Learn more about the Make It OK campaign. 

  • Better understand what you can do to reduce the stigma through key messages and resources. 

  • Feel more confident in talking openly about mental illness, and helping people get the care and support they need. 

Who Should Attend: Any person within an Iowa long-term care community who enjoys connecting, engaging, educating and promoting mental health awareness is invited to attend one of the live, virtual Make It OK presentations. There is no limit to the number of individuals that long-term care communities can have participate in the presentation. Each participant should register individually to receive their own unique connection.
