CASE STUDY: Time to Change Beer Mat Campaign goes Viral

Provided by i-media Limited
Admedia beer mats go viral for Time to Change men's mental health campaign.

What was the Challenge / Background of the Campaign?

Shockingly, 84 UK men under the age of 45 commit suicide every week as a result of depression and other mental health disorders. Time To Change wanted to reach out both to vulnerable males and those friends who may be concerned about them, in a relevant social environment - the pub. The campaign's objective was to build awareness and drive response for those seeking support.

What was the Solution?

Beer Mats were utilised in pubs and bars across the country.

What were the Results?

A single tweet from a pub goer, containing an in situ photo of our Time To Change Beer Mats, went massively viral. To date it has received an incredible 74,000 retweets and 205,000 likes. Adam O'Malley, Twitter user, posts: "These beer mats are SO needed. Suicide is the leading cause of death for men under 45, killing three times as many British men as women. It's time to talk about men's mental health." Thanks to the Beer Mats, this tweet opened up a dialogue that increasingly raised awareness and created further talkability amongst a wider online audience.
