Welcome to the #EPA2023 Social Media Toolkit!

We look forward to welcoming you to the 31st European Congress of Psychiatry, gathering psychiatry specialists from all over the world. To enhance your experience and ability to connect with people, we encourage you to share information about the Congress, and your participation in it, on social media – before and during the event.

Hashtags

The official hashtag for EPA 2023 is #EPA2023. Make sure to use the hashtag when tweeting and posting, to be part of the discussion.

Hashtags help connect users within related conversations and are also searchable, making them a valuable resource for both clinicians and patients. We highlight and encourage the use of hashtags but recommend using no more than three per tweet or post.

Other hashtags you can include in your tweets and posts include:
