Social Media: Why it Matters for Children's Mental Health (part 1 of 2-part series)

Presented: June 12, 2012



This webinar will focus on why social media is important for the children's mental health world and will provide data as to who is using social media and how, why it matters, and what impact it can have on the field of children's mental health. Attendees will walk away with data and language they can use to then persuade others in their organizations, community and system of care efforts to use social media, and give it the time and energy that's required to use it successfully.
