Make It OK Mental Health Community Event
September 27, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Help stop the silence & stigma surrounding mental illness.
Join us for a special presentation and conversation on mental illness and ways to reduce the stigma. This event will feature a panel conversation with healthcare, mental health, school, and community leaders. The panel will discuss local strategies to reduce stigma and plans to improve mental health care in the region in addition to answering any questions that you may have.
This is a FREE event open to everyone.
Each year, 1 in 5 adults will experience a mental illness, and 60% do not seek treatment. The stigma surrounding mental illnesses is one of the barriers to people getting the help they need and deserve.
Make It OK is an initiative that focuses on reducing stigma by starting conversations about mental illness. Everyone has the ability to help to “Make It OK” to talk about mental illness and stop stigma.
If you have questions, please contact Natasha Ward at 715-684-1285 or email@example.com.
