Three steps to Make It OK

  1. Learn. The more we learn about mental illness, the more common we realize they are. 
  2. Talk. The more we talk about mental illness, the closer we come to stopping the stigma.
  3. Share. Encourage others to join by taking the pledge. 

By signing this pledge, you’re taking a stand against the mental illness stigma. Pass it on. Print it out. Tape it up. It can serve as a reminder to start more conversations and stop the labeling. Together, we can Make It OK.
