Shooting “Be A Man” public service announcement

By Steve Cichon

Spent the morning today as an -ahem- actor in a public service announcement calling men to action in dealing mental health issues. Its a privilege to be able to help.

I know this sentence sounds a bit silly– but no one ever needs help– until the moment they need help. That moment could come anytime for any of us, and for a lot of us- that moment might have come and gone, and for whatever reason, we didn’t reach out.

The number at Crisis Services is 834-3131. You don’t have to feel like “you’re in crisis” to call. Its a great place to call if you don’t know where to start… and the easiest way to turn on the light down at the end of the tunnel.
