@SPSMCHAT 2.0 Reboot! Hosts an Open Mic on Feb. 3rd, 9:00 pm ET. It’s #YourTurn. What are the #HotTopics for you related to suicide prevention, intervention or postvention? Where are the gaps? What might be a solution?

Open Mic

Your Turn – Open Mic

This will only be on Twitter tonight. No YouTube live streaming (something about a football game had the production posse dropping off like flies).

We have hosted three #SPSMCHATs since rebooting on January 13th. The topics have touched on the #ImpactedFamily movement stepping out of the shadows into the light and the new resources that have been developed for self-care. January 20th, the topic was #socialjustice (or injustice) and #suicideprevention. This was the first of what will be three chats to focus on this concern. On January 27th, attempt and loss survivors chatted about their innovative approach to increased emotional balance through a wellness check workshop series that brings attempt and loss survivors further along the healing path together at one table.

Tonight, February 3rd, we’ll step back, pause and turn the #SPSMCHAT to put the focus to what’s on your mind? What has you excited or upset? If you are troubled about a problem or a gap, what might be done to address the problem or help to fill that gap?

  • Is there a report, blog or article that caught your attention? Post it! Let’s chat about it.
  • Did you listen to a really good podcast? Share the link.
  • Did you attend or deliver a training or presentation? Tell us about it. What was your take-away?
  • Are you presenting at #AAS19 or another conference, symposium, workshop, etc.? Tell us about it.

These are just a few suggestions to get the conversation jump started.

Now, about that football game. If you are going to be tangled up in it, feel free to use Hootsuite or other post scheduling software to schedule your Tweet to arrive into the chat stream between 9:00 – 9:30 pm ET. If you do this, please begin your Tweet with:



That way we can capture your posts into the Wakelet curation and everyone can sit down on Monday and catch up with the entire content of the Chat.

For those who may have missed the chats from the first three weeks, the links to the YouTube videos and the Wakelets are below.
