The Internet’s leading authority on radicalized geese


Mental Health Camp 2009

On Saturday, April 25, 2009, Vancouver will host its first unconference on Mental Health.

It all started with a panel held at Northern Voice this year – Coping Digitally.   This panel got a lot of positive feedback and I think everyone there felt like they really wished there had been more time to discuss all the issues raised more fully.  Enter Mental Health Camp.  This full-day event is ” a conference about the intersection of social media and mental health.”  From their website:

We are asking questions such as

  • How can blogging help decrease the stigma of mental health?
  • How does someone with a mental illness navigate the waters of anonymity in the transparent world of social media?
  • How is the journaling that happens in blogging similar to or different from journaling for healing?
  • How can social media participants with mental health issues help each other?

If you are interested in volunteering at, presenting at and/or attending Mental Health Camp, be sure to check out their wiki site.

Props to Raul and Isabella for organizing this!
