The recent 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment identified that addressing the stigma of mental health issues in the community as a priority. In order to respond to this need, the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative and Capital Crossroads invites you to join us to discuss the launch of Make It OK, a community campaign to reduce stigma of mental illness.
Your input about how we can take this campaign to the community is important. When we start talking, we realize that mental illnesses are more common and relatable than we think. And more importantly, people experiencing mental illnesses will be treated with respect, acceptance and be more apt to get the care they need when stigma is eliminated. We hope you can join us at this presentation and discussion to learn more about Make It OK and ways to engage.
