#SPSM Video Chat on Social Media Campaigns for Suicide Prevention

In case you missed it, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time lately with Blabs and Periscope. These along with things like Google Plus hangouts and Meerkat have made live streaming of video stupidly simple and amazingly interactive. I’d love to hear your thoughts on these platforms and how you think we should use them and how you think healthcare should use them. What would you find valuable.

With that in mind, I was intrigued by this Google Plus hangout with members of the #SPSM community talking about social media campaigns for suicide prevention month:

What do you think of video hangouts like this? Are these discussions good? Will they reach the intended audience? Is video going to be a powerful medium for healthcare? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
