Make it OK

It's time to start talking about mental health and to Make it OK

  • 1 in 5 will have some kind of mental illness in their lifetime.
  • It's OK to have a mental illness — many people do.
  • It's OK to talk about mental illness — talking makes people feel less alone.
  • It's OK to get help with mental illness — life can get better. 

What is Make it OK?

Make It OK is an anti-stigma campaign that was created to encourage individuals to talk more openly about mental illnesses. By breaking the silence, we can help our friends, neighbors, loved ones, and team members feel understood and supported. 

Just as learning about physical health or financial health has helped us create stronger families and a more caring environment, we believe that combating stigma will help us make UnityPoint Health Cedar Rapids a more supportive and accepting organization—and will have a positive impact on our community at large.

More common than you think

Mental illnesses are surprisingly common. One in four Americans, from all walks of life, experiences a mental illness each year. But because of the stigma, most people live with their symptoms for 10 years before seeking treatment. This impacts not only those with mental illnesses, but their friends and loved ones, too. Mental illnesses are highly treatable; the sooner people get treatment, the greater their chances of recovery.

LET’S LEARN TOGETHER

With Make It OK we’ll learn the facts about mental illnesses; myths, misunderstandings, and misconceptions; the effects of hurtful language; and about living successfully with mental illnesses, among other topics.
