Delivering therapy online, using social networking to engage and using social media for self-help is technically doable... but should we use it, and where is the evidence and efficacy to say it does more good than harm? Learn from some of Australia's leading mental health and social networking experts how to use social media to: - Engage young people, consumers and hard to reach people - Should you use new media? Where is the evidence that it works? - What innovative programs are available? - How can you use social media for lobbying and counselling? - How do you plan a social media strategy?

Featured speakers include mental health advocate Adj. Professor John Mendoza, Professor Kathy Griffiths of the Depression & Anxiety Research Consumer Unit at ANU, Sam McLean, Communications Director at GetUp! and many more.
