Suicide Prevention Social Media with Dr. April Foreman: spsmchat.com
As she’s already heard, April is a breath of fresh air. We met by chance at The National Council for Behavioral Health and immediately set up a live interview. Now MHNR Network is doing all we can to further her message with www.spsmchat.com. Doc Foreman has her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology. She enjoys working in rural settings, and finds that the picture in her office of her grandmother holding up an enormous catfish can often mean more to her clients than the degrees hanging on the opposite wall. She believes that using information technology and social media resources can bring state of the art mental health care to her rural clients. She has experience using a system of phone texting to help clients chart their daily mood and share them with a treatment team and trusted circle of friends and family. She also uses social media platforms like Twitter to connect with innovators and thought leaders in healthcare across the world, and uses her website to curate compelling Twitter chats on issues about which she is passionate. Her work in this area has been featured in the ARHQ Innovations Exchange.
Currently, Doc Foreman is serving Veterans as a Suicide Prevention Coordinator in Baton Rouge. She enjoys using her clinical skill, and talent for practical problem-solving to prevent suicide in US Veterans, who have *twice* the risk of dying by suicide as the general public.
