Content toolkits for mental health creators

The Center for Health Communication at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health prepares public health leaders of all kinds—including social media creators, who in today’s world millions of people look to for health information—to effectively communicate critical health information.

As part of our Creators Program, we create content toolkits for creators who want to spread evidence-based health information, starting with those working in mental health.
