How To PSA Action Kit

"The Kids Are Not Alright" PSA Campaign

In partnership with BBDO New York, Sandy Hook Promise is releasing three, short videos (one minute or less) that illustrate the current emotional situation among kids: a “powder keg” that can give rise to various forms of youth violence – not just shootings, but suicide, self-harm, and depression.

Parents and caring adults who know how to spot the outer signs of an inner struggle can prevent mental health challenges or emotional distress from turning into any form of violence.

Help us raise awareness to prevent tragedy.
