'Know the Signs' video from Sandy Hook Promise viewed millions of times in weeks

A video about identifying the warning signs of gun violence released just three weeks ago by Sandy Hook Promise has been viewed more than 70 million times on Youtube.  5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty says this underscores the need to reach out to youths who feel isolated and may be thinking about harming themselves or someone else.

The Know the Signs campaign includes the 2.5 minute video public service announcement designed to show how easy it is to overlook at-risk behavior.



The group's founders include Nicole Hockley and Mark Barden. Both had 6-year-old sons who were among the 26 children and educators killed four years ago.

Sandy Hook Promise is also offering a Know the Signs guide on how to recognize the warning signs of gun violence as well as how to bring their no-cost trainings to schools and youth organizations.  The organization says they have trained over 1.5 million youth and adults in 22 months on how to recognize warning signs of gun violence and intervene effectively. 

Sandy Hook Promise says these programs have spurred interventions in response to multiple threats – including a school shooting, suicides and firearms brought to schools – as well as helped to reduce bullying and get hundreds of individuals mental health assistance.
