Webinar: Recognizing the role of social media in community mental health settings: Opportunities to support providers, promote trust, and improve service delivery

Social media platforms have emerged as highly popular venues for sharing personal experiences, seeking information, and offering peer-to-peer support among individuals living with mental illness and those facing the challenges of substance use. With significant shortfalls in the availability, quality, and reach of evidence-based mental health and substance use treatment services across the United States, popular social media platforms may afford new opportunities to bridge this gap.

The goal of this three-part webinar series is to present the state of the science on the role of social media as a potentially viable intervention platform for engaging persons with mental disorders, enhancing existing mental health services, and supporting community-based mental health providers.
