A new media campaign features central Ohioans who are living with mental illness.
Lucretia Johnson is one of the people featured in the campaign from Franklin County's Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board.
She said she was happy to be part of the campaign.
"That's really what I wanted to get out is that I take medicine, I do counseling, have case management services, and this is what you have to do in a life with mental illness, Johnson said.
ADAMH CEO David Royer said the feedback about the new campaign has been strong.
He said the message is simply that mental illness is treatable and that people living with it can also lead productive lives.
"They're just like you, and they look like us. They are a fabric of our community that needs support," Royer said.
The three people providing the messages took a major step in the face of stigma.
Johnson said it was a source of pride.
"But now it's like I can go anywhere," Johnson said. "I'm a celebrity."
