Week 6 Get Started: Suicide PSA Proposal

Done: View

Value: No grade this week; 100 points when submitted

Due: Week 8, Day 7


In Week 8, you will be completing a public service announcement (PSA) on an area of interest for suicide prevention based on the materials for this course or other resources.

For this assignment, you will create an engaging one- to two-minute public service announcement (PSA) aimed at mobilizing the community to take action and facilitate change. Your announcement should be designed to grab and hold the attention of the viewer. You will need to conduct research about the population and suicide prevention in order to create an effective PSA. Identify the risk and protective factors of your population of interest.

You may use the medium of your choice, such as podcast recording, video recording, or PowerPoint video. Your PSA must include voice over.

In preparation for this assignment and to help you get started, you should consider the following:

  • Develop a list of outcome objectives your PSA will address.
  • Familiarize yourself with other public service announcements to evaluate what you feel is effective or not effective.
  • Tailor your PSA regarding suicide prevention carefully to the special population people group.
  • Think about your word choices. How will you capture people’s attention?
  • What questions will your PSA answer? How will your PSA raise awareness or change the public’s attitudes and behaviors?
  • How does your PSA fulfill the objectives you have created?
  • Script out your PSA and prepare for recording.

Here is some extra information to guide your PSA.

SAMHSA’s Suicide Prevention App, Suicide Safe, for Health Care Providers Video Transcript

Practitioners in primary care and other clinic settings have the opportunity to connect to people who may have suicidal ideation and behaviors of concern.

Suicide is preventable; SAMSHA research informs us that one of two people who have killed themselves had contact with a primary care professional prior to their death. In addition, one of five people had seen a mental health provider prior to their death. Some people had gone to the emergency room in the months prior to their death.

Even silence is communication. There are encounters when the patient is not ready to fully disclose with the practitioner. Silence in this context can be empowering for the client, and resistance can occur if the pace of communication is too fast. Slowing down allows the patient to gather their thoughts. Cultural sensitivity demonstrates regard for diversity, beliefs, and behaviors. For example, sometimes patients are silent about important things because they want to express sensitive information to someone from a background similar to their own. Respecting communication patterns requires a disposition that demonstrates an awareness of the dignity and uniqueness of each person.

Questions to keep in mind:

  • What happened when communication stalled for you?
  • What were the results of poor communication?
  • Did it result in a wrong diagnosis? Incorrect or unnecessary medication? Was there a loss of contact with a patient?
  • Were you able to overcome the communication failure?
  • What communications skills would you have liked to have better practiced to change the outcome for the patient?

Use these instructions to record your video:

  1. Open the Zoom Tutorial to use for video recordings.
  2. Upload your recording as an unlisted video on YouTube. Important: It is your responsibility to ensure that your link is active and working. It is highly recommended that you play back your video from a different device than the one you used to upload to YouTube to ensure that it works properly.
  3. To upload your YouTube video URL to the Week 8 assignment:
    • Create a Word document properly named to associate with the assignment.
    • Copy and paste the YouTube URL into the Word document.
    • Upload to the Week 8 assignment.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) youth are three times more likely to report having thoughts of suicide. LGBT youth are five times more likely to have attempted suicide. 17% of LGBT populations and 40% of trans people have made suicide attempts (Jadva et al., 2023). LGBT young people’s increased risk of self-harm, suicidal attempts, and suicide compared with heterosexual youth remains well established and reasonable cause for a public service announcement.Reference:Jadva, V., Guasp, A., Bradlow, J.H., Bower-Brown, S & Foley, S (2023). Predictors of self-harm and suicide in LGBT youth: The role of gender, socio-economic status, bullying and school experience, Journal of Public Health, Volume 45, 1, 102–108,
