QB United Campaign, Video Launch with NFL Sunday Kickoff, World Suicide Prevention Day
QB United’s suicide prevention campaign features a one-minute video which aggregates short mobile video clips by the 57 current and past NFL quarterbacks who speak directly on camera, providing messages of support: “talk to someone,” “talk to your family,” “you matter,” “stay here with us,” “you are loved,” and “it’s OK to talk about it.” The video highlights that, according to the World Health Organization, every 40 seconds someone dies by suicide, less time than the video itself. Here is a 30-second version of the one-minute video which debuts September 10.
