How To Make a:
You Can Recover Video

It is a priority of ASHA International to ensure safe messaging in all of its communications.

  • Video submission
    Please submit only one video under five minutes in length.
  • Upload video to YouTube
    In order to upload your video, you must have a valid YOUTUBE ACCOUNT.
  • Clear sound is crucial.
    If no one can hear it, no one will watch it. Make sure to shoot in quiet environments and project your voice.
  • Don’t backlight.
    Make sure light is on your face and not behind it — i.e. don’t sit in front of a bright window.
  • Title and tag your video.
    Use the title “You Can Recover” and include your name and location – ex: “You Can Recover: Aaron in Tucson.”
    Use tags to describe your video so that other people can find it — ex: “Depression recovery Portland, Oregon” or “Seattle man recovers from depression”.
  • Include a caption script.
    If you can, SUBMIT A TRANSCRIPT OF YOUR VIDEO AS A CAPTION FILE ON YOUTUBE. This will help make sure your video is accessible to deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals as well as users internationally thanks to Google translate.
  • Please don’t use our logo in your video.
  • Sample Script: If you like, here is a sample script: “Hi, my name is ……….I am the Director of, an artist, a father…….share your humanity and resilience first and then your struggle and how you have overcome it……….here are some things that have helped me recover and rebuild a healthy, meaningful, productive life. If you are struggling with a mental health issue, I want you to know that you are not alone. There is nothing to be afraid or ashamed of. There is hope. Please get help. And, remember! You Can Recover.”
