Below the Surface
The Below the Surface campaign was created in 2017 in response to a wave of teen suicides in Colorado Springs. It was developed by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Colorado Springs and the Design Rangers creative strategy firm in consultation with a youth advisory board who shared their experiences in order to make the campaign truly impactful. The state was so impressed by the campaign’s success, uniqueness and authenticity that it decided to invest in leveraging the group’s foundational work on a statewide basis.
