Animated Videos for Vail Health and EVBH


Illustrated “Get Psyched!” Animated Video

During this troubling time of pandemics and business closings in the recession, Vail Health and Eagle Valley Behavioral Health (EVBH) coalition developed additional mental health supports for their region. Their leaders collaborated with us at ActionCraft to reach out to an increasingly stressed and worried community through a series of animated stories in both Spanish and English.

Recurring waves of Covid-19 infection have delayed the first EVBH summer (2020) campaign, but the videos provided an engaging opening for strategic planning between the Eagle Valley Behavioral Health partners and the region’s philanthropic community.

Spanish Version of the “Get Psyched!” Animated Video

These colorful videos provide empathetic content and a spirit of determination and belonging that helps communities navigate complex health crises. It is important to make the story clear through the illustrations and to offer it in the language of the community.

"We couldn’t be happier with how the end products turned out…"

Illustrated Video Animation Celebrating the Success of EVBH Integrated Health and Wellness Initiatives

The goal of this video is to share with the community, contributors, and partner organizations the robust success of EBVH across each of its eight integrated initiatives designed to improve health and well-being in their valley and to reduce any need for residents to travel long distances for appropriate behavioral care and services.

Leaders hope the video will expand interest and engagement in their slate of programs and bring more people into support services. They will spread the video through targeted social media and through a series of community and partner presentations in the fall of 2020.

“Ken, this video absolutely blew us away! Amazing work! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication…”
