Social and New Media for Mental Health Organizations
Wednesday, August 20, 2014 3:00 pm -- 4:00 pm ET

Social and new media are changing how we interact and communicate. We all know we’re supposed to have and maintain various social media accounts for our organizations and incorporate technology into everything we do. But how do we turn a “like” or a “tweet” into positive change for the mental health of all Americans? How can we use a smart phone to enable recovery? Do we really need an Instagram? And how do we understand which social and new media tools we should use (and which to leave behind) when the landscape changes every day?

Designed for staff at mental health organizations who don't use social media every day, the webinar will begin with a quick review of social media tools, the audiences they help us reach, and what kind of content works best. Then we will look at emerging trends and discuss how to measure effectiveness. We will explore how some nonprofit organizations have used social media or emerging technology to fulfill their missions and potential ways that mental health organizations could do similar work. We'll also address concerns about using social media appropriately and respectfully.

Presenters:

  • Ritu Sharma, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Social Media for Nonprofits;
  • Mike Thornsbury, Marketer and Mental Health Volunteer;
  • Jessica Kennedy, Webmaster, Mental Health America
