Make it OK! Community Call to Action to Reduce the Stigma of Mental Illness
March 11 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
In 2020, amidst the COVID pandemic and the derecho, a group of leaders came together to launch the Make It OK campaign in Linn County. The goal is to reduce stigma related to mental illness, in conjunction with the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative. The effort has included a monthly virtual series called Make It Ok Midweek, training of more than 100 Make It Ok community ambassadors, engagement of high school and college students, and work with employers to provide tools for their employees.
On March 11th, we will be hosting a community wide virtual event, Make It OK! Call to Action, with emcees Lura McBride of Van Meter and Michelle Niermann of UnityPoint Health. Ben Nemtin, international speaker and #1 New York Times best-selling author, will deliver the keynote.
