Silence makes it worse. Learn more here.

Make It OK is a campaign to reduce the stigma of mental illnesses, encouraging individuals to talk more openly about mental illnesses. We believe that if we know more, we can do more. If we understand more, we’ll make it ok. These online learning experiences are designed to help you understand more about mental illnesses and people living with them. In many of the activities you’ll get to know real people living with a mental illness. You'll hear about what matters to them, their accomplishments, successes, fears, struggles, and truths.

It is our hope that these activities will foster a deeper level of awareness and support around mental illnesses and reduce stigma. The ideas are not intended as a must-do list, but rather as a learning tool to help you feel more knowledgeable and better equipped to make it ok for the people in your life who may be touched by a mental illness.
