Spirit of Youth’s Coalition is running youth developed public service announcements (PSAs), promoting use of the Careline, on popular format radio in Anchorage. These messages were crafted by local youth to share the significant protective role that supportive adults and community engagement play in youth mental health and the powerful negative impact bullying has on the lives of young people. The PSAs refer listeners to call or text the Careline if they need to talk to someone. The PSAs are aired during school drive time (before and after school) to encourage parent/child conversations around mental health and bullying.
Call anytime, toll-free: 1-877-266-4357 (HELP) or text 4help to 839-863, 3-11 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.
