Make it OK is a national campaign to encourage individuals to talk more openly about mental illnesses. The workplace is the most important environment to discuss mental health and illness, yet it is the last place we expect to hear about it.

Employees are afraid of discussing it with co-workers and bosses. They don’t want to lose their jobs, damage relationships or risk future employers learning of illnesses and judging them. The stigma of mental illness keeps them silent.

Mental health in the workplace

To support employers, we have created easy to use tools for employers to implement within their workplace. Use the accompanying toolkit for your business to help start the conversation that it's OK to talk about mental illness, seek treatment and get the help necessary. 

Intended Audience:

  • Wellness coordinators
  • Human resource representatives 
  • Passionate employees looking to increase awareness and reduce stigma 

Please note: This toolkit is intended to be used as a general guide and may be edited as needed based on specific population needs. In addition, the toolkit is best utilized in an electronic format, due to many web-based resources or materials.
