Mental Health Awareness Campaign & Broadcast
December 9, 2019 @ 10:30 am
Please join Governor Gina Raimondo, First Gentleman and the Rhode Island Broadcasters for the launch of an unprecedented mental health awareness campaign and broadcast. As the holiday season gets underway, Rhode Islanders are spending more time with friends, colleagues, and family members. Now is the time to be aware of your own mental health and to let Rhode Islanders know that It’s OK Not to Be OK. Members of the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association have partnered together with officials from the State of Rhode Island to tackle mental health and substance use issues.
For the first time, reporters from ABC-6, NBC-10, and WPRI-12 have worked together to tell the stories of everyday Rhode Islanders who are dealing with theses types of issues but have found help and hope through statewide initiatives. Local television and radio stations will air a locally produced, half-hour special simultaneously on December 14 at 7:30pm. The conversation, led by Captiol TV
s Margie O’Brien, will continue on Rhode Island PBS from 8 to 8:30pm. The special will provide resources for viewers and listeners, their loved ones, and those caring for people with mental health and substance use issues. Details will be announced at the media event to kick off this long-term campaign.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2pm on Friday, December 6.
