Warning Signs Campaign:

The goal of this campaign is to engage caregivers with a coordinated campaign focusing on the warning signs of mental health issues. Mental health issues often sneak up on people without them being fully aware. But the warning signs are there, like chewed pen caps and stomach aches. The visual concept dramatizes those warning signs, helping sneaky mental health symptoms rise to the level of awareness and motivating people to take action by reaching out to the Caregiver Assistance Program.
