@GabyAcosta101, virtual mental health community organizer chats with #SPSM, Sun 9pm CST

A “Virtual Mental Health Community Organizer” is a work title no one would have used even a decade ago. But, today this title implies a special set of skills used to build awareness of a cause by building a social media community around it…

Sound familier, #SPSM? We’ll be chatting with Gabriela Acosta about how she organized Suicide Prevention and Awareness Blog Day and other similar projects. You can take away ideas for how to grow your own virtual community, and learn what skills and experts are needed for such projects. Join us at #SPSM chat Sunday, 9/7/14 9pm CST!

The Tweets for this chat will be archived on Storify.
