13 YARN provide 24/ 7 confidential, culturally safe crisis support. The First Nations led service connects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders with trained crisis support workers to to yarn about your needs, worries or concerns without judgement.
33 were engaged by 13 YARN to enhance the reach and awareness of the service. We worked with the team to create a social campaign featuring diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander influencers to promote the 13 YARN services to their audiences and enhance overall awareness in First Nations communities. We were excited to be working on this campaign being the first crisis support for First Nations people in Australia.
Our creative approach was purposeful and targeted to make sure we engaged talent that aligned with the known high users of the service, including age groups and cohorts of the community at highest risk of crisis situations.
Working with 11 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander influencers across Facebook, Instagram and TikTok, we created a brief that allowed our content creators to make content that was engaging and resonated with their individual audiences in an authentic and meaningful way. We wanted creators to feel empowered to talk to their audiences about mental health, and promote that there is a service out there specifically for mob to call during times of need.
Josh from Black Fitness, a young Wiradjuri man, drew on his personal experience to create content that was both reflective of his own journey and lived experience sharing his own tips to look after your mental health and wellbeing.
Working with proud Yorta-Yorta woman Allira, we were able to reach her audience of over 40,000 people to create a message that not only promoted the 13 YARN service but more broadly reduce stigma and shame associated with mob talking about their mental health.
If you or someone you know is experiencing crisis, visit 13 YARN or call 13 92 76, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
