Ohio Launches Youth Suicide Prevention, Wellness Campaign




The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services joined with members of the Ohio Youth-Led Prevention Network Youth Council and Motivational Educational Entertainment Productions, Inc. to launch the Be Present campaign to promote youth suicide prevention and wellness.
The campaign encourages young people to step up, speak out and be supportive of peers struggling with isolation, depression and other mental health issues. The Be Present campaign targets young adults from high school, through college and early adulthood through a website, social media, print ads and digital PSAs.
Using the tagline “Your Presence is a Present,” the campaign is especially geared toward young people who are the victims of bullying, those struggling to overcome mental or emotional problems and those who are most at risk of harming themselves.
