The Mental Elf is popular with a broad range of professions and it’s used most by nurses: results from our November poll


I had a fantastic response to the November poll, so a big thanks to everyone who took the time to tell me what professional group you belong to.

The Mental Elf is used most by mental health nurses who make up 21.9% of the total polled audience.  It’s also well used by patients (12.4%), students (10.4%), psychologists (8.4%), researchers, scientists and academics (6.5%), psychiatrists (4.5%) and social care professionals (4.5%).

Perhaps the most pleasing statistic to come out of the poll was that all categories got some kind of response, which really shows the broad appeal of the site across the 15 professional groups with an interest in mental health.  Mental health workers are the core audience as you would expect, but the site also gets used by GPs, carers, journalists, librarians and other health and social care professionals.

I’m taking a break from polls in December as me and my elfin chums will be having a well earned holiday at the North Pole for the festive period. I’ll be blogging throughout the festivities, so you won’t have to do without your daily updates.
