Changing the Conversation and Perceptions Around Mental Illness.

Watch This Video

Healthy Minds is continuing our work to eliminate the stigma associated with mental health is-sues and encourage everyone to evaluate their mental health and seek appropriate help when necessary. Major health concerns in our country are widely discussed and publicized to increase awareness and bring about change. We have witnessed this with cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, but not with mental illness. This cannot continue. We must all join together to change the conversation around mental illness and substance abuse. With the launch of the Okay to Say campaign Healthy Minds has aspired to raise awareness and give a positive voice with a message of hope for those with mental illness and substance abuse.

Healthy Minds has not only provided the Okay to Say campaign in English, but also Spanish. In an effort to address behavioral health issues and capture cultural nuances Healthy Minds has been the first organization to launch a Spanish version which is not simply a translation of the English campaign. Our Spanish campaign has been thoughtfully created by local members of our Hispanic community sharing their personal stories with behavioral health issues. Just as the English version, the Spanish Okay to Say campaign provides a platform for people to genuinely share their stories of struggles, recovery, and hope. English and Spanish videos are now available to be viewed. Click here to learn more about and join the Okay to Say movement.
