Big thanks to everyone who completed our 1-question survey this month.
We asked you to pick which one of twenty roles best described you, so that we could get a sense of the sort of people who follow us on social media and read our blogs.
We had an overwhelming response! Well over a thousand people (1,177 to be exact) completed the survey and here are the results.
- 74.6% of our audience can broadly be described as professionals. This includes health and social care professionals, researchers, teachers and others
- 18.4 % of our audience can broadly be described as patients, service users, survivors, activists or carers
- Every group that we included in our survey got at least 8 responses; from citizens to scientists, from survivors to students, from psychologists to psychiatrists and everything in between. It’s especially pleasing that we’ve built such a diverse group of followers because this makes the conversations that we have around evidence much more democratic and meaningful.
