Taking care of our mental health should not be something that falls down the list of priorities, especially when working in the ‘always on’ culture of comms. So how do we make sure we are taking steps to protect ourselves and others?
We owe a duty of care to the people (even if just ourselves!) who manage nonprofit social media accounts, because they are often at the front line when it comes to a crisis.
In this episode, I talk with Kirsty Marrins about ways in which charities can look after the mental health and wellbeing of themselves, their co-workers, and volunteer or intern content creators and social media moderators.
Kirsty has been working in the charity sector for over 15 years. She is passionate about helping organizations improve their communications and connect and engage with their audience. Over the last decade, she has trained thousands of charity professionals in the areas of social media, digital marketing and copywriting. In 2016 she won a CharityComms Inspiring Communicator Award and in 2017 she won Best Trustee on Social Media in the Social CEOs Awards. Kirsty is a proud trustee of CharityComms, the professional membership body for charity communicators.
