Suicide Prevention

On May 31, 2017 Governor Steve Bullock and the Montana Broadcaster’s Association (MBA) announced a new media campaign of TV and radio public service announcements that focus on raising awareness about suicide prevention in Montana. The MBA is an organization made up of 155 TV and radio stations all across Montana. The spots will be made available immediately to all MBA members to begin airing. The MBA offered to produce, at no cost, the new spots designed to reach out to Veterans, youth, and those in the highest risk age group, males ages 35-64. A fourth ad spotlights the signs of suicide.
