Questions About Behavioral Health? Ask SAMHSA!
Facebook, Twitter, and SAMHSA’s blog recently launched Ask
SAMHSA! This new feature offers you an opportunity to hear
from some of the Nation's experts on behavioral health questions.
You can post your own questions on a specific topic through
SAMHSA’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Answers will be posted
to the SAMHSA blog on video.
The concept behind “Ask SAMHSA!” is very similar to the White
House’s “First Question” project. This is how it works:
- Each month, SAMHSA posts
a topic and solicits questions
from you through Facebook
- All questions are reviewed
and a few are selected.
- A video response is posted
to the SAMHSA blog,
When selecting questions for video response, the following
criteria will be considered:
- Is the question on topic?
- Can the expert answer the question?
- Are resources available to answer in a timely manner?
If your question is not selected for video response, SAMHSA will try to
respond to questions in followup blog posts.
Look for SAMHSA on Facebook and Twitter and submit your
questions! Remember, when submitting questions on Twitter,
please use the hashtag #BHQ.
