Last summer, when I was an intern for NAMI, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a launch event on Capitol Hill for Ok2Talk.org. I listened to Congressmen and women talked about how important it was for the government to set aside party differences and address mental health issues in the coming year. I was there for the big reveal from the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) of this brand new campaign that was aimed at teaching young people that it’s “ok2talk” about mental illness.
