Make It OK is community campaign to reduce stigma by starting conversations and increasing understanding about mental illness.
Did you know 1 in 5 are diagnosed with a mental illness in a given year while 1 in 8 are diagnosed with diabetes? Yet how we talk about these two illnesses is very different.
In the 50 minute presentation you will:
- Learn more about what Make It OK is
- Better understand what you can do to reduce the stigma through key messages and resources
- Feel more confident in talking more openly about mental illness, and helping people get the care and support they need
