Stronger Together campaign
Concerned about the high rates of suicide among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, R U OK? contracted 33 Creative to provide advice and develop a targeted, national communications campaign.
Working closely with the R U OK? Indigenous Advisory panel, we developed and produced culturally appropriate advertising materials, including assets for television, radio and digital. We also developed a style guide, templates and tools to help communities to start a conversation about mental health and suicide prevention.
We also delivered media and social media strategies and hosted a media launch which was well attended and reported on national outlets. Followed up with targeted stakeholder engagement to continue momentum of the campaign and resources throughout the year and in the lead up to annual R U OK? Day activities, including social media assets and moderation guidelines for culturally safe conversations.
In producing the video assets, we worked with key ambassadors to share their story and personal struggle of tough times. This storytelling approach showed the community that it’s okay to talk about these issues, to break down stigma and encourage members of the community that together, we are stronger. The end result is highly engaging video and digital content delivered across multiple platforms.
