Exercise 10

 

  1.  Allen, Kelly. "55 Celebrities Talking about Their Depression, Anxiety & Mental Heath." Glamour. Glamour UK, 09 May 2017. Web. 14 Nov. 2017.

This is a strong source for my PSA as it provides a large list of current celebrities that have come out to he public about their mental health issues over the recent years. This list will be used as a base for the PSA as many other these celebrities range from music to movies and even writing. It gives a spectrum of people with many different fan base making it easier to connect with a view when they know one or two celebrities featured in a commercial opposed to a PSA that has only one. Using only one celebrity could limit the potential of the message to be a larger group if the view is unfamiliar with the person they see on screen. Say if one musician did a commercial by themselves their fans would pay more attention to it and be more likely to talk about with other people or look into the message. On the other hand, if some who did not know who this musician or was not a fan of their music, they would be more likely to change the channel and ignore the PSA. Using multiply celebrities would be the best approach as this can peak more viewers interest as will as attention to the message.

  1. "National Alliance on Mental Illness." Nami.org. N.p., n.d. Web. 14 Nov. 2017.

PSA with a good website at the end that provides an interested viewer with a beneficial information and help from websites. The worst thing that could happen after a PSA is a poor site that doesn’t seem to prove the viewer the answers they were looking for. I believe the site Nami.org will provide a good good at not only informing a viewer more, but providing a number of other resources. It shows them how to get in contact with help directly as well a signs and statistics. Another positive thing about the site is even if the person isn’t affect by a mental illness it allows them to donate towards the cause of helping others with it. Most importantly of all they have their owe support community and even rally’s awareness to help spread the message. This type of sight gives a view all the information they would need on the topic along with a telephone number for more specific questons.

  1.   Telegraphtv. "Beyonce's Met Gala Dress Causes Stir on Red Carpet." YouTube. YouTube, 05 May 2015. Web. 15 Nov. 2017.

Provides the primary scene that gives the audience the initial feeling of how get it must be to a celebrity. Celebrities look like they are on the top of the world when walking down a red carpet. They are dressed in the latest and must expense clothes while hundreds of reports, cameraman, and fans are screaming for a moment of their attention. The smiles on their faces will usually posted in magazines around the world and influence millions of people because of their fame.

  1. DieComedyFreakz. "Iphone SMS Tone Original." YouTube. YouTube, 10 Dec. 2011. Web. 15 Nov. 2017.

The commentary help drive home the feeling that celebrities most also feel good about themselves as there are those of people always complimenting them and making them feel good about themselves. Helps create the illusion that many people in the modern day feel good about themselves through others admiration. Many people that the PSA is aimed towards that are in their 20s and under now seek validation on social media. Many people’s egos are established and built by the feeling of receiving likes and comments from numerous people at once. 

 

 

Intro

 

Hello, my name is Kirby Toussaint and this I the mypage I created. Over the past few months as I created this page that brought different aspects of healthcare together and seemed difficult to find the overarching theme. Ultimately I found that it had been looking be in the face the whole time as my writing had a similar underlying message. This mypage focuses on my interest on the need for change the medical field. This change being that we must be more proactive in healthcare by building a stronger bond between doctors and patients as well as putting more of the patients control in their own hands.

From my first paper I believed that mistakes in the medical field can have drastic consequences because of minor errors and miss communications. Millions of people have been negatively affected by this and i personally fall under this category. At the end of the day it isn’t one specific person fault but really the lack of reform to do change these problems. These site shows how I believe that it is possible for a positive change to happen and help create a better healthcare system.

This sites is based on the idea that health shouldn’t be something we just take care of at hospital and with our doctors. The best way to maintain a good quality of health is by being proactive instead of reactive. To do that we can no longer rely only on or doctors and caregivers. True health can be reached by making personal choices to better ourselves along with the aid from hospitals and clinics.

Thought out this site it can be seen ways that people can take their health into their own hands in a number of ways. Along with this, how we can help with the health of others around. Many people are afraid to help others that battle continuous illness and don't know where to start. In the one of my papers and my PSA i focused on one of these major problems, mental illness. Many Americans today face a daily struggle with this illness as 1 in 5 adults have a mental issue. This is a growing problem that many people face alone because of the lack of awareness and understanding of the issues it causes. When I first started researching this i was very unclear on what the actually issues was with mental health and didn’t know that there so many numerous forms of it. After educating myself on the topic I found it to be something very important to maintain health. A health body starts with a health mind. Many conditions that must Americans have stemmed from a mental illness. The problem is that the stigma around mental illness is very negative and people with it are seen as crazy and incurable. That why this site is focused on education people that health is a continuous battle that can be won through personal care and awareness.
