Today our club heard from Marna Canterbury, MS, RD.  Marna is the Director of Community Health and Well-being @ Lakeview Health Foundation (HealthPartners).  Her topic was "Make It OK".   "Make It Ok" is a campaign to reduce the stigma of mental illnesses.  We learned about the symptoms and that recovery is possible.   We were given tips for supporting someone and what to say.  During our Stigma quiz (agree or disagree), I was especially reflective on the following question, "I am more comfortable helping a person who has a physical illness than I am helping a person who has a mental illness".
Thanks Marna for your presentation and challenging us to take the pledge to Make It OK.
