We're going to walk 100,000 steps. That's roughly 42 miles! Help us support MakeItOk.org as we tackle this task.
Stigma is a leading barrier to the treatment for those suffering from mental illness. Through the development of a Make It OK Ambassador Bureau, along with a statewide coordination effort, local Iowa communities will have the opportunity to bring community education and discussions together to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illnesses.
Make It OK is here to help educate Iowans and get the conversations going. Start by learning what a mental illness really is. Then, find out what to say and not to say when someone opens up to you. You can also help others by sharing your own story to help people know they aren’t alone.
To support this cause, we're walking 100,000 steps in a single day. We want to raise awareness that it's OK to talk about mental illness. Help us in supporting this amazing cause, and join us as we share our progress on Facebook Live.
