I've called suicide prevention hot lines before just to see how fast they'd pick up their phone. I swear if I was truly suicidal, I would have been dead by now. Just saying.

Seriously, sometimes the best thing (if you have no-one else) is someone who will pick up the phone fast and really listen.

These ads are visually interesting, but my first take out with the (happy-face) hand over face is the mask we put for the world to see - I don't know, maybe the message could be more related to that.
Just my two cents.

They make sense but I doubt they have the right impact on sad people.

I agree with the first comment. To me the visual talks more about putting on a false happy face to the outside world. I think there is more inherent truth in that than what the headline actually says.

This isn't working at all.

It's illustrating the darkness of the problem.

A facade of happiness hiding the absolute despair.

Was this focus grouped at all???

Pull it and rethink it, seriously.

Yep, it's not transforming but covering. Interesting but wrong visual.
