At this point it is not a question of “if” a mental health organization should use social media, it’s more of a question of how. Bennett has been helping organizations answer those questions since the beginning of social media adoption in the healthcare sector.
Bennett will be joining #SPSM to discuss strategy and answer questions about organizational social media adoption.
