HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- The base recently completed a six-part public service announcement series created to promote resilience through mental health, family advocacy, alcohol and drug abuse prevention and treatment, and sexual assault prevention and response.

In commemoration of this achievement, the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office and other Team Hill helping agencies will host a movie premiere that will feature all six PSAs along with guest speaker, Jeff Bucholtz, founder of We End Violence, at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Nov. 16 at the Base Theatre.

These PSAs were designed to encourage individuals to seek help by destigmatizing helping agencies using humor and local celebrities.

“Allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and asking for help is difficult for anyone, but it is the best and most important thing we can do for ourselves and our family, friends, and coworkers," said Jessica Patten, SAPR specialist. "By reminding our uniformed members that when it comes time to hang up the uniform, taking care of their core person is the lifetime goal.”

At the premier, Bucholtz will further endorse help seeking behaviors and also discuss common misconceptions about resiliency.

“We need to get to a place where everyone understands and accepts that it’s okay to not be okay” said Maj. Madeleine Jensen, Hill's former deputy sexual assault response coordinator.

Jensen created and produced the PSAs along with Adam White from the 2nd Audiovisual Squadron.
