Update: New Site Under Construction

As you may have noticed my posts have become a bit irregular. I have a lot on my plate right now, but I am so thrilled that our Mental Health and Social Media (#mhsm) chats have continued and have been a great source of inspiration, resources, and real ideas we can put into action.

The chat continues to be held on Tuesday evenings (US) at 9pm CST/10pm EST.

I am currently working on the creation of a new site that will be more informative and keep you all up to date. I am blessed to have the help of @outofshell (Kathleen) and @gordonglenn (Gordon) who are really giving me a huge gift of their time and service for this project. Stay tuned, as it won't be long before we have the new site ready!

This past week @perthtones (Tony) juggled an in person tweet-up in Perth, Australia while he co-hosted the chat and brought the week's topic to the table. See all transcripts and stats at What the Hashtag?!

I am still in need of topic ideas and input, so please do not hesitate to share your thoughts with me here or on twitter at @MHSMchat or @Abeeliever.

Some topics to consider:
1)Crisis Intervention Services and I can line up someone to speak about this, it just won't be immediate - would take time to arrange.

2)Discussion of a new name or label, if you will, to replace "consumer" or "mental health consumer" stressing a positive outcome. And then in a follow-on (the following week) discussion how to you get the establishment (gov't and mental health community, etc.) to use it.

3)How mental health is portrayed in the media and how we can help change that.

I'll think of some more.
