Topic 7 ASSIGNMENT

PSY-102 – General Psychology

Topic 7 – Psychological Disorders and Treatments

Mental Health Brochure

PLEASE FOLLOW THE RUBRIC! GRADING IS BASED OFF OF RUBRIC!

Select a specific mental illness and create a brochure which addresses the following:

Describe the mental illness selected (description, symptoms).

Discuss stigmas associated with the mental illness selected.

Present different treatment options.

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 appeal to the message of the brochure but is not 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.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

Visual Appeal 10.0% There are few or no graphic elements. No variation in layout or typography and layout is cluttered, confusing. The text is extremely difficult to read with long blocks of text, small fonts, and inappropriate contrasting colors. Poor use of headings, subheadings, indentations, or bold formatting is evident. The layout shows some structure, but appears cluttered and busy or background interferes with readability. Understanding of concepts and relationships is limited and made difficult due to lengthy paragraphs, too many different fonts, overuse of bold, or lack of appropriate indentations of text. Minimal use of graphic elements is evident and do not consistently contribute to the understanding of concepts, ideas, and relationships. Sometimes the fonts are easy to read, but in a few places the use of fonts, italics, bold, long paragraphs, color, or busy background detracts and does not enhance readability. Thematic graphic elements are used but not always in context. The fonts are easy to read and point size varies appropriately for headings and text. The layout background and text complement each other and enable the content to be easily read. Appropriate and thematic graphic elements are used to make visual connections that contribute to the understanding of concepts, ideas, and relationships with appropriate use of headings, subheadings, and white space. Text is appropriate in length and to the point. The background and colors enhance the readability of the text.
