Nominate the best mental health event taken #BeyondTheRoom in 2019 #MentalElfAwards

Mental Elf Awards

The Mental Elf Awards have been in full swing for a few weeks now. We are recognising excellence in mental health research and have already asked for your 2019 nominations for best mental health research paper, best Mental Elf blog, and best online mental health research conversation. You can keep making suggestions in those categories for the next few weeks, so do get your thinking caps on and send us your nominations.

Today we are opening an important new category: the best mental health research conference or event covered by our #BeyondTheRoom service. For the last few years we have been helping mental health event organisers reach much bigger audiences by covering them live on social media. We use a combination of blogs, tweets, podcasts and videos to help people #BeyondTheRoom to follow what’s going on at the conference and get involved in the conversation.

Please nominate

Please nominate the best mental health event covered by our #BeyondTheRoom live tweeting service in 2019.

Mark Brown, Vanessa Gilmartin Garrity and André Tomlin launched the #BeyondTheRoom service in 2016 and it has quickly grown into an extremely popular way to increase the reach and impact of mental health events.

In 2019, we covered 44 events and we’ve listed them all here so you can remind yourself what went on. Once you’ve had a think, please nominate your best mental health conference/event (covered by #BeyondTheRoom).
