Mental-Health-Tweetchat2 Update: It has been requested that the hashtag for the upcoming tweetchat be changed as #mhchat is already in use by another organization. Therefore the new hashtag is #mhpchat

 

Recently I asked mental health providers to fill out a survey to gauge interest in having a tweet chat to discuss issues in the community. The response has been overwhelming. But first things first. I want to thank everyone who took the time to complete the survey. Your responses have been very valuable in finding the pulse of the community. And now it’s time for the results:

Q1: How often would you be able to participate in a tweetchat?

While many of you responded that you were fine with monthly chats, weekly chats was just a little more popular.

Q2: What are the best days for you to participate in the chat?

According to the results, Sundays @ 3pm edged out Mondays @ 8pm and Fridays @ 7pm

Q3: Which Hashtag do you like?

Out of all the options available, #mhchat was hands down the most popular. None of the other options came close.

Q4: What topics would you like to see discussed during the chats?

Oddly enough, there was a four way tie for most popular topics. The front runners were: Best Practices, Handling Burnout, Social Media, and Therapeutic Techniques. Though some of you also requested Stress Management and Working with High Conflict Clients.

So we are going to ease into the new year. The first chat will be held on January 19, 2014. The topic of discussion will be Handling Burnout. If you’ve never participated in a tweet chat before, here are some tips.

  1. Instead of following the hashtag on Twitter, use Tweet Chat instead. It’s a super easy app to use and makes following the chat a lot easier.
  2. Introduce yourself when you join the chat. We like to know you’re there.
  3. The chat will last about an hour. There will be four or five questions asked to facilitate discussion. When answering a question, use the hashtag. That way it shows in the chat.
  4. If you see an answer you like, retweet it. It will be much appreciated.
  5. Don’t be shy during the chat. If you have something to offer, tweet it.

Again, I want to thank everyone who took the time to participate in the survey. See on on January 19 @ 3Pm!
