Help Network Launches Awareness Campaign

February 8, 2018

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Help Network of Northeast Ohio, formerly Help Hotline Crisis Center, is launching a new awareness campaign to emphasize the services it offers in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties.

The campaign is spearheaded by two TV public service announcements featuring short messages from Help Network CEO Vince Brancaccio and a young boy reading the notes he puts on a refrigerator, assuring those facing problems that “help is here.”

“Right now, Help Network is known for helping people in crisis or considering suicide,” said Brancaccio in a news release. “But we not only take thousands of suicide and crisis calls, we work with people face-to-face for mental health, substance abuse and homelessness.”

The goal of the campaign, produced by Farris Marketing, is to inform people of the wide array of services Help Network offers. The name change last year, Brancaccio added, was also part of the awareness campaign.

The commercials will air through the end of the year.
