Support Your Bateman Team!

The annual Bateman Case Study Competition is now underway and the Scripps PRSSA Bateman team needs your help. Each year PRSSA National picks one client for chapters across the nation to research, plan and implement a campaign. This year’s client is the Campaign to Change Direction. The goal of the campaign is to change the culture and understanding of mental health. Scripps PRSSA’s team has been working hard since November to develop an appropriate strategy. All of the research and planning has led to A Month of Mindfulness: Understanding Mental Health.
