Make It OK: Employer Toolkit now available for organizations
The Make It OK campaign in Iowa, led by the Healthiest State Initiative, has announced a new way for employers across the state to take action to end mental illness stigma in their workplace. The Make It OK: Employer Toolkit is available to workplaces that register their organization on the Make It OK website. Upon registration, employers will receive the digital toolkit, which includes a step-by-step guide to implement Make It OK within an organization and includes links to additional resources. “Stigma prevents people struggling with a mental illness from seeking the help they deserve,” said Jami Haberl, executive director for the Healthiest State Initiative. “This leads to increased absenteeism and lower productivity rates for Iowa businesses. Employers across the state are eager to get their hands on these resources so they can begin to address stigma within their organizations.” To register your workplace, click here.
