Make It Ok to Talk About Mental Health Hosted by the Davenport Public Library
Prior to our current pandemic, nearly 20% of people experienced some form of mental illness. Now that we are in the middle of it, mental health challenges have affected even more people. Unfortunately, most of those affected by mental illness either delay seeking help, often for years, or not at all, primarily due to the stigma associated with it.
Join us Tuesday, January 26th at 6:30 pm on Zoom for “Make It Ok to Talk About Mental Health” with Dr. Terry Haru, Ph.D. The “Make It OK” presentation is designed to help reduce stigma by doing three things. First, to increase awareness of what is stigma and mental illness. Second, to inform people what and what not to say to someone who has shared that they have a mental illness. And, third, to identify resources you could use to increase your understanding of mental illness and contribute to ending the stigma surrounding it.
