Getting our evidence to those who need it

Cochrane Common Mental Disorders' New Year's resolution

In 2019, we plan to be more active and innovative in how we disseminate our reviews. We want to reach a wider audience and get our evidence to those who need it.

To help do this we are extending our use of social media. As well as Twitter, you can now follow Cochrane Common Mental Disorders on:

We are going to use these platforms to test different ways of presenting our reviews (videos, graphics, blogs) to try to make our evidence more accessible. We will work with new and exsiting partners including those with lived experience of common mental disorders to guide what we do. 

In the past, we have disseminated review information via Twitter. We are going to keep doing this but try to get better at it. Reaching a wider audience and presenting our reviews in more accessible formats is our goal. We tried some of this last year and (although we didn't always get it right) we have already had lots of helpful ideas and suggestions. Please leave us your comments and ideas via our social media platforms to help us get the conversation going.
