A look back at our Twitter Q&A with psychiatrists
Members of the public were invited to engage informally with psychiatrists as part of Green Ribbon month through the CPsychI 3rd annual Twitter Q&A session which took place on Wednesday evening, 31st May at 7pm.
For 2 hours Consultant Psychiatrists Dr Miriam Kennedy and Dr Jennifer Hoblyn took charge of the @GreenRibbonIRL Twitter account to engage with people about mental health recovery and answer their questions about psychiatry. Both doctors are Consultant Psychiatrists (General Adult and Later Life) so concentrated on questions on mental health in later life / old age mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and dementia.
To get involved, people simply tweeted their questions including the hashtag #AskPsych. Below is a recap of the various discussions had on the night.
