Case Study:
Sign Of Strength:
A Campaign to Promote Mental Health In Inverclyde Scotland During Covid

Client: ICARG
Art Direction & Copy: withHeart
Design: Mark Hutton Creative

How do you help those that won’t admit they need help?

This project started with the realization of a problem in offering compassionate outreach services in the Inverclyde during the Covid-19 crisis:

People - and elderly men in particular - are too proud to pick up the phone and ask for help - even though they genuinely need it.

There’s a sense of “somebody else will need help more than I do - I’ll be ok.”
