Take action to end mental health stigma

It all starts with you. Stigma won’t end on its own. It takes compassionate people like you to stand up and tell the world that it’s OK to have a mental health condition. And it’s OK to talk about it.

You don’t need to be an expert on mental health and illnesses to talk about it or share the Make It OK message. You just need to want to end the stigma and start caring and informed conversations about mental health. By sharing the Make It OK message with others, you can help stop the stigma, create more caring communities and help improve and even save lives.

Turn your passion for stopping the stigma into action.

Start by taking the pledge, becoming a Make It OK ambassador, donating or simply learning more about mental health and Make It OK.
