Top Ten Online Influencers in Children’s Mental Health

I received a very pleasant surprise yesterday while hard at work yesterday pulling together all of our forms and statements for our income tax returns…my family will view it as evidence that I spend way too much time with my computer!

Sharecare Now 2

I was honored to be listed among the Top Ten online influencers in the field of children’s mental health (#7, to be specific) by SharecareNow. SharecareNow, powered by WCG, is an online platform developed to access real-time analytics on various health topics, conversations and influencers, and to use these insights to meaningfully impact the conversation through strategic engagement. The platform allows health and wellness professionals, organizations and brands to leverage the most accurate data, solutions and best practices to participate in the social service of expert health and wellness content and communities. Here’s some info on the selection criteria…

Influencers included in “SharecareNow 10: Childrens Mental Health” have demonstrated influence within childrens mental health conversations online. Influence is calculated through a proprietary algorithm based on more than 70 distinct metrics, including disease-area relevance and online syndication, presence and reach. All metrics are based on content produced over the past year (from the list’s publish date) across multiple online channels, including Twitter, blogs, forums, mainstream news and video.

While I very much miss the opportunity to travel and teach as much as I once did, I’ve wanted to continue to fulfill my responsibilities as a physician specializing in child psychiatry to educate parents and professionals about the mental health needs of kids and families. It’s gratifying to see that I’m continuing to meet my responsibilities on that front. Anything that calls attention to the work of our team at Key Ministry and the resources they’ve developed to help build bridges between churches and families of kids with disabilities can’t help but be a good thing.

Thanks to the folks at SharecareNow! Here’s the rest of the list
