HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah — A team at Hill Air Force Base has set out to encourage Airmen to seek help when they need it.
In order to break the stigma that is often the barrier to asking for assistance, a series of six public service announcements are being created at Hill for service-wide distribution.
The base premiered the first ad last month, urging Airmen to reach out to resources such as mental health, alcohol and drug abuse treatment, sexual assault response, family advocacy, and employee assistance when it’s needed.
The clip titled The Big Picture features actor Jonathan Camp, recognized for his appearances on StartUp, Six, and American Fright Fest, and television personality Diesel Dave Kiley of the Discovery Channel’s Diesel Brothers.
The video uses humor to illustrates how Airmen play a critical role defending the nation, but that the Air Force also recognizes no one can perform at maximum capacity at all times. At some point or another, Airmen will need resources.
The remaining ads are currently in different stages of production. All of the videos will be hosted on the Air Force’s resiliency website at www.resilience.af.mil.
The 2d Audiovisual Squadron at Hill AFB is producing the ads. Capt. Madeleine Jensen, base deputy sexual assault response coordinator, wrote the scripts for the productions in coordination with organizations across the service.
