As one of former Division 42 President June Ching’s presidential initiatives, a “Blog Corner” was created for the Division 42 website. These monthly blog entries, written by myself or a member of the blog team, provide a social media opportunity for informational sharing to improve professional practice outreach. Tips and ideas are generated on a variety of psychological or mental health issues. The hope is that these articles encourage you to consider how you can engage in public education, either at the state/national level with your state Public Education Coordinator, or as information for your own website or waiting room. Please feel free to copy these ideas for posts or to repost or Tweet. You are also invited to add comments and keep the discussions interactive. I only ask that if you use the blog in its entirety that you attribute it to the original author.
