Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
BAW matches with what we do – mental wellness. We’re working to actively teach and engage the general public that mental health problems are physical problems that affect/are effected by brain health. Since our campaign was entirely digital, it is hard to estimate the immediate outcomes other than increased awareness and education.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
The BAW designed graphics felt a little too busy, so we opted to create our own using the BAW logo. We also try to cater to every aspect of life – workplace, sports, community, classroom, military, and home. It would be nice to see more activities centered on these specific audiences.
