#MHFA Social Media Lessons, Part II: aka What I learned from #ALGEE

June 2016— I was honored to be the first to do a #TwitterTakeover of @MHFirstAidUSA‘s account, & I learned alot about #socialmedia planning in the process.


This post is what happened AFTER that!
I did a one hour webinar for Mental Health First Aid instructors, arranged via Mental Health First Aid of Missouri, called “Hashtag #MHFA: How we can both #endstigma, promote #ALGEE, and engage 
potential “first aiders” via social media outlets.”  Here is the formal description of the training:

“The presentation gave an overview of 4 social media tools & a planning platform MHFA Instructors can use to promote the values of MHFA, advocate to #endstigma, and to engage the public and/or potential “first aiders” to become involved.  It discussed how these tools work together, how to define and find your best audience, and how to use the planning platform to develop a basic social media campaign.  It also discussed engagement vs. “posting”, and how to build a community, and analyze your “reach”.

I’m not going to re-hash (get it, re-HASH) the entire training here, but during that training I realized I had a list of resources I could not only share with those instructors, but also with YOU, my readers, to help with your #SocialMedia Adventures.

Among the links are also links about the #TwitterTakeover, feel free to check those out and share away!


if you don’t want the MHFA specific starter kit, there is another free Social Media Starter Kit here.

I hope to see you on the inter-webs! Let me know what fun you create with these tools, or if you know of any others!
