Make It OK Mental Health Awareness Walk Set for May 16 

MASON CITY, IA — May is National Mental Health Awareness Month and local organizations are working  together to spread the message. The Mason City Chamber, Community Health Center of Mason City, City of  Mason City, and CG Public Health are hosting Mason City’s “Make It OK” Walk on Thursday, May 16 to raise  awareness and end the stigma associated with mental health.  

All community members are invited to wear green and join the free awareness walk in downtown Mason City.  Mental health resource tables will be open from 11AM-1PM at the Principal Pavilion on the downtown plaza  and a short oration will commence at 12PM, followed immediately by a large group walk downtown along a  marked portion of the Sculpture Walk. People may come grab lunch from a downtown restaurant, walk, and  gather resources at their convenience during the 2-hour period. Resource BINGO cards will also be available  for walkers to collect information and turn in for a prize drawing. 

Businesses and organizations interested in providing resources and information on mental health may  participate by setting up a resource table. Contact Bayley McCormick at Community Health Center of Mason  City for more information ([email protected] | 641.450.0601). The deadline for table  registration is Friday, April 26. 

One in five Americans experience mental illness each year. Make It OK. Spread the word and help end the  stigma. Additional information about the event can be found on the “Mason City Community Make it OK Walk”  Facebook event page.
