About the Campaign “Are You OK?”

In Oklahoma from 2019-2020, 1,685 people died from suicide, three times the number of those who die in a car accident.

The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse launched a new, free training program to engage business owners and leaders. “Are You OK?” gives people a comfortable, accessible way to talk about mental health in the workplace. The program gives business leaders tools and an active role in preventing burnout and employee turnover, better equipping HR professionals and supervisors to support employee mental health and helping to foster a culture of care. 

Some of the industries that have the highest suicide and depression rate are also some of Oklahoma City’s top employers: oil and gas, construction, automotive, agriculture, and trucking/transportation.
