City of Coral Springs Wins Emmy Award for Suicide Awareness Video

By Sharon Aron Baron

The City of Coral Springs Communications and Marketing Department and Mayor Scott Brook won an Emmy Award on Saturday at the 46th Annual Suncoast Awards ceremony held at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando.

The video, titled “Mayor’s Story – Suicide Awareness,” was named a winner in the Health/Medical Short Form Content Category.

Brook was featured in the video, sharing the personal story of his mom’s tragic passing from suicide. The video was strategically published during September 2021, Suicide Awareness Month, which helped to open the door for conversation about mental health and to break down the stigma that typically surrounds sharing mental health issues.

“I am incredibly proud of this Emmy win and so grateful to Mayor Brook for trusting our team to tell his story,” Lynne Martzall, Coral Springs Director of Communications and Marketing, said. “Our video team worked collaboratively to conceptualize the most powerful way to tell the story of Marsha Brook that not only shined a light on suicide awareness but also showed how much she meant to her family. The Emmy recognition reaffirms our department’s commitment to providing premier content that informs, engages, and empowers viewers.”

During his acceptance speech, Mayor Scott Brook dedicated the win to his beloved mother and reaffirmed his commitment to breaking the stigma of mental illness.

The Emmy awards were issued to Mayor Scott Brook, Communications and Marketing Director Lynne Martzall, Video Production Manager Ryan Himmel, and Videographer/ Editor Josh Berlant.
