The most recent Crow Wing County Community Health Survey found that more than 1 in 4 adults in Crow Wing County experience mental illness. Most will wait an average of ten years before seeking treatment, largely due to the stigma.

By talking about mental illnesses and what we can do to Make It Ok, we change hearts and minds about the misconceptions about mental illnesses. The Make It OK campaign is designed to encourage people to talk more openly about mental illnesses and ask for help.

When we start talking, we realize that mental illnesses are more common and relatable than we think. And more importantly, people experiencing mental illnesses will be treated with respect, acceptance and be more apt to get the care they need.
