#MHNR2017 Mental Health Nursing Research conference, Cardiff, Sep 2017

This is a great conference that’s been going for many years now (this was the 23rd annual International Mental Health Nursing Research Conference) and it didn’t disappoint. The 2-day event brought together mental health nurses, service users and other professionals to “celebrate the evidence, creativity and innovation which characterise the field, and a healthy, critical disposition to the context in which this is enacted.”

Impact and reach

We were delighted at this event to have more than one thousand people tweeting during the 2 days of the event; a #BeyondTheRoom record in 2017! In total we had 1,072 people sending 4.3k tweets which made 28.8m Twitter impressions.

#NPNR2016, Nottingham, 15-16 Sep 2016

We recently covered the #NPNR2016 conference in Nottingham and the Symplur Twitter analytics show that from the 12.5 million impressions we had during the week of the event, over 8 million came directly from #BeyondTheRoom social media activity of our Twitter accounts (Mental_Elf, VanessaLGarrity, WeMHNurses, MarkOneInFour). This clearly demonstrates that our involvement in the conference brought a 3-fold increase in the overall Twitter reach.

Testimonials

Wow! Employing #BeyondTheRoom for our #NPNR2016 event brought a 3-fold increase in our Twitter reach.

André, Vanessa and Mark understood what we needed and made a huge difference to developing our reach and impact. Our pre-conference keynote speaker discussion was live streamed on YouTube, and this and its associated @WeMHNurses #WeMHNs tweet chat drew in people from the UK and beyond. We had live tweeting from every speaker session, and videoed every plenary speaker for future use. All this represented a considerable, and helpful step up for us and we look forward to working together again in 2017.
