Identify the stigma of mental illnesses in ourselves and as it relates to our patients, family, coworkers, and others. Learn unique and non-traditional ways communities can create educational opportunities for stigma reduction/elimination.

Use makeitok.org to change hearts and minds about the misperceptions of mental illnesses by encouraging open conversations and education on the topic.
