Client headlines: Kids’ Minds Matter, NAMI Collier County and more

Each month, we spotlight some of the outstanding media coverage of our clients’ news and events. You’ll see them featured frequently in newspapers and magazines, on television and radio, and on blogs and social media. 

In March, Priority Marketing helped generate earned media coverage in advance of Unmasking the Epidemic, a virtual event hosted by Kids’ Minds Matter that addressed growing concerns with mental health impacts of the pandemic among our youth. Kids’ Minds Matter is dedicated to fostering partnerships that support existing services, identifying and filling gaps in the continuum of care, and innovating new treatments to meet the pediatric mental and behavioral healthcare needs in Southwest Florida.
