LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) - Arkansas pharmacy students are backing a campaign in hopes of preventing suicides.

Callie Hogancamp, a second-year pharmacy student at UAMS in Little Rock, told KARK about the 'It's OK to Not be OK' campaign.

It coincides with the Let's Talk initiative started by the World Health Organization.

Hogancamp said she hopes it encourages those who need help to seek it and decrease the stigma associated with mental illness.
