SMW Bristol: The Mental Health Pros & Cons of Working in Social Media

  • Access Creative College Bristol (map)

It has been well documented that, as consumers, social media has an impact on our mental health and wellbeing. But what about those who work in the field every day? Working in social media is an ever-expanding and changing discipline and as a relatively new career path, it can be a challenging beast to grapple with. Creating content, mobilising communities and receiving instant and very public feedback can be extremely creative and fulfilling – but when it goes wrong, it can provoke anxieties and compulsions.

In this panel discussion, we’ll explore the highs and lows of working in social media and demonstrate how community managers can equip themselves for a healthier work/life balance. Expect lively debate, frank personal accounts and practical tips and tricks. Tickets are available here.
