Five Campaigns We Liked in October

#IAMWHOLE – NHS/YMCA

Spirit Media enlisted Jordan Stephens, one half of hip-hop act Rizzle Kicks, plus a host of celebrity influencers, for #IAMWHOLE – an NHS/YMCA anti-stigma campaign launched to coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10 October. Backed by, among others, James Corden, Ed Sheeran (pictured) and Dermot O’Leary, who used their influence on social media to spread the message, the central idea was to encourage people to post a selfie with a circle drawn on their hand to raise awareness. #IAMWHOLE, which was aimed at 11- to 24-year-olds, kicked off with the live launch of song Whole in the 162m-high BritishAirways i360 venue on Brighton beach. A national and regional PR campaign ran simultaneously.
