Introducing the Global Mental Health Communications Toolkit
The MHIN Global Mental Health Communications Toolkit was launched in October 2015 at the Grand Challenges Meeting in Beijing, China by author Agnes Becker, MHIN's Targeted Communications Manager.
This webinar recording of the presentation introduces each of the tools in the toolkit alongside illustrative examples. The tools enable you to communicate your idea on a budget, and cover:
- How to package your key messages to make them remembered and acted upon by your stakeholders (to be covered in a future webinar).
- How to plan your communications methods and activities to achieve your project and policy objectives.
- How to produce perfect communications products, including impact summaries, blogs, infographics and policy briefs, to communicate your key messages to your stakeholders.
NOTE: The research brief referred to during the slide on the Perfect Communications Checklist tool is entitled How to catalyse scale-up of maternal and newborn health innovations in Ethiopia and is an output of research led by Dr Neil Spicer, a qualitative scientist working with the IDEAS project, based at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
