Social media training for mental health research

June 7 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Are you a PhD candidate researching child and adolescent mental health and interested in improving the dissemination of your research via social media? The SWDTP is providing a half-day training course facilitated by Andre Tomlin of The Mental Elf to improve your social media skills. The course will take place at the University of Bath on the 7th June 2022 (1-5pm). 

The training will guide you in:

        • Becoming familiar with the range of online tools and methods available to disseminate mental health research, e.g., blogs, social media, podcasts, online events.
        • Working through scenarios and reaching consensus about the best ways to build online profiles and networks in mental health.
        • Exploring different online communication styles and consider what works best when discussing mental health in the public domain.
        • Leaving with practical examples of what to do next to take your public engagement to the next level.

There are 20 places on the training programme for students across the SWDTP network, including 3-5 places for non-SWDTP students. Some limited travel funds are available for students who are unable to use their training support fee for travel to Bath. Please indicate on the form whether you would need financial support to attend.

To apply please complete this short survey.

As places are limited, we ask that you only apply if you believe you will be available on the day. Applications will be open until Monday 16th May, after which time we will get in touch to confirm if your application was successful.
