I'd like to blog but I don't know where to start - A WMHD 2015 webinar
Thursday, 15 October 2015 from 09:30 to 10:45 (BST)
The Mental Health in Further Education Network (MHFE) and BIS Community Learning Mental Health Pilot are offering online sessions each weekday from 12th - 30th October to celebrate World Mental Health Day 2015.
On Thursday 15 October 2015 at 9.30 am we are pleased to bring you:
"I'd like to blog, but I don't know how to start - or where to stop"- Overcome your blogging barriers once and for all"
Lou Mycroft says Ed Melia helped her to free her voice. Here in conversation Lou and Ed will help you overcome your blogging (and other professional writing) barriers. They will help you 'find your voice', grab your readers' attention, start conversations and build an audience for your work.
The practical stuff

Join from a PC, Mac, iOS or Android
1) Download and install Zoom (or the Zoom app on your smartphone or tablet) before the webinar
> https://zoom.us and download Zoom. It's a tiny bit of online meeting software that takes a couple of minutes to download and install. It doesn't seem to cause too many problems with firewalls but if you think your work firewall might block it please get your IT department to add it to your permissions in advance of the session.
2) Select the following link to join the session https://zoom.us/j/6874931372 or join by phone: +44 (0) 20 3695 0088
3) Enter the meeting ID (which we'll send you when you register your place here on Eventbrite)
We want everyone to enjoy and have full access to this webinar. Please do not be offended if we ask you to help us do so. You can help by telling us, when you book, if you have any specific accessibility requirements we need to know about.
If you notice something we've missed or made difficult for you or others please let us know and we will do everything we can to make it right.
Once you've registered your place we'll send you the meeting ID by email. Eventbrite will automatically send you a reminder 48 hours before the session. We look forward to meeting you.
