You Can’t Flee From What’s Inside Your Head

You Can’t Flee From What’s Inside Your Head

This is a new campaign from Denmark, initiated by the Region Sjælland.
It is about psychosis, a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a “loss of contact with reality”.
The campaign focus is on early intervention in psychosis. It is a relatively new concept based on the observation that identifying and treating someone in the early stages of a psychosis can significantly improve their longer term outcome.

The message is simple and clear: You can’t flee from what’s inside your head (Du kan ikke flygte fra en psykose).
The early intervention isn’t mentioned in the tv-spot. It think that is smart, it can act as a deterrent. I wonder if that is a strategic decision.


The campaign contains many print items as well: Posters, flyers, post cards, big ads on busses.
Unfortunately the used QR-code leads to a non-mobile website. The most common mad mistake.
