This month's Mid-Week Virtual Series theme is Stop the Silence; Stop the Stigma.
Make It OK - Linn County, in partnership with the Cedar Rapids MedQuarter, is pleased to announce, Make It OK Mid-Week, a virtual series designed to raise awareness about mental illness and resources that are available for our community members, workplaces, and places of worship. A panel of experts and everyday individuals will share strategies and lived experiences that will benefit you and someone you know.
With the onset of the coronavirus crisis, nearly half of adults in the United States indicated the pandemic was having a negative impact on their mental health; nearly 20% said a “major impact”(*). Prior research indicated that 1 in 5 will experience a mental illness during their lifetime. As we move toward our next normal, it is more critical than ever to move past the stigma around mental illness. Please join us on this journey to Make It OK.
