Topic 7 – Psychological Disorders and Treatments
Mental Health Brochure
Select a specific mental illness and create a brochure which addresses the following:
1. Describe the mental illness selected (description, symptoms).
2. Discuss stigmas associated with the mental illness selected.
3. Present different treatment options.
4. List community resources for a person diagnosed with this disorder.
When creating the brochure, consider the following:
Is there a specific population whom this brochure would be especially beneficial? For example, a brochure illustrating PTSD may be written to address soldiers or their family members. With this in mind ensure that information and resources are focused toward this population without specifically stating the population on the brochure. It should be obvious based upon the information included, the visuals, and resources.
Use a brochure template. Templates can be found in Microsoft Word in new documents or in Office templates. Consider visual appeal, including pictures, charts, different font size, and colors, which adds content to the message of the brochure but is not too overly distracting.
Include a minimum of three scholarly sources. Full references should be included on the brochure. In-text citation should also be included in the brochure.
