Improving Mental Health Through Engaged Communities

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Research shows the more engaged a person is with their community, the more they get out of it. But how does this really work -- how do online communities help people with their mental health? What can we do to improve how these communities function and make people feel like they're in a real, supportive community? What have your experiences been with these communities? What made you feel better or worse while in a community? This is a core conversation.
