WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (MAY 2, 2022) — Members of the Williamsport Area High School Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Club received on-field recognition Friday night for a recently produced video during a pre-game ceremony at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.

The group was acknowledged for the production of a 60-second PSA created to help raise awareness on mental health stigmas and suicide prevention. It played on the stadium's scoreboard just ahead of the Pirates-Padres game.

Their recognition, which stems from the video's first-place win in Prevent Suicide PA's (PSPA) annual state-wide contest, was a part of Suicide Prevention Awareness Night at PNC Park. The awareness event was held in partnership between the Pirates, PSPA and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
