We?ll hear stories from community members and discuss ideas for taking care of our own mental health (or the mental health of others). This will be a mix of panel and speaker led sessions, with time at the end for Q&A. Additional resources will also be shared at the end of each session. About Make It OK: Make It OK is national campaign to reduce stigma by starting conversations and increasing understanding about mental illness. The campaign was created and launched by HealthPartners in Minnesota in 2012 before being introduced to Iowa in May 2019. Since then, the Make It OK message already reached more than 2,000 Iowans through formal presentations and 165 Make It OK Ambassadors have been trained. Led by Make It OK, this 6-week series is supported by Capital Crossroads, the Greater Des Moines Partnership, Mid-Iowa Health, and the Business Record. ... read more
