Live action PSA integrated with animation for the U.S.Department of Veterans Affairs to help spread awareness of PTSD and veteran suicide prevention.
Produced to help veterans and their loved ones understand the importance of creating a safety plan tailored to individual or family needs that can support someone in the home who may be in crisis. The video tells the story of how working with VA counselors to create and implement a safety plan helped one Veteran and his family, and encourages others to talk with their health care providers about safety planning.
The premise of the spot starts with an interview of a veterans wife. Tracy recalls her moments with her husband Mark who is a war veteran. She takes us on a journey, recalling moments with her husband Mark. She highlights happy family moments with Mark, and his PTSD episodes. She goes on to explain how her and Mark got help from the Veterans affairs hotline.
