OSOT’s OT Month 2021 Strategy
The Society engages actively in both promoting occupational therapy and facilitating members’ ability and opportunity to promote their profession and services themselves, in their workplaces, in their communities, and across their networks.
What is OSOT doing to promote OT during OT Month 2021?
- We’re launching a social media promotional campaign that we hope members will embrace and share. We make it easy for you to promote OT - just share our posts on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter with your networks!
- We're launching a new Instagram account, engaging yet another platform to share OSOT activities and to promote OT ALL YEAR LONG!
- We're developing a new Mental Health and OT page for OTOntario.ca to enrich the resources of our public facing website that speak to the growing need for mental health services. We plan to launch this in October to be a landing page for a fall digital marketing campaign focused on promoting occupational therapy as a mental health profession.
- We're developing a new OT Month Toolkit to share with members and to make getting "involved in promoting OT" as easy as possible.
- We're taking time to celebrate OT and to honour OSOT's 100th Anniversary and invite you to participate in weekly activities to engage you in OSOT's history. Our theme for OT Month 2021 is 100 Years Strong! Ontario occupational therapists help make the everyday possible.
