A really great interactive exploration of seeing and perception using well-known optical illusions. Very awesome looking multimedia website exploring the mind and its’ myriad of functions.
These brief videos are intended to educate the general public about the science of psychology and to illustrate how psychological research can be applied to a broad range of issues and challenges. They are part of an expanded APA public education campaign to increase peopleâ€™s understanding and appreciation of psychological science. We are particularly excited about their potential for use as part of secondary school psychology and other science programs.
The first release includes an introduction, an episode on bullying, and an episode on young childrenâ€™s mental health. We hope you find them interesting and informative. Feel free to link to these videos from your professional websites. APA will be linking to them on our Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
About the movement:
The Movement for Global Mental Health (â€œthe Movementâ€) is a network of individuals and organizations that aim to improve services for people with mental disorders worldwide, especially in low- and middle-income countries where effective services are often scarce. Two principles are fundamental to the Movement: scientific evidence and human rights.
Bring Change 2 Mind is a national anti-stigma campaign founded by Glenn Close, The Balanced Mind Foundation, Fountain House, and Garen & Shari Staglin of the International Mental Health Rescue Organization (IMHRO), aimed at removing misconceptions about mental illness.Â The idea was born out of a partnership between Glenn Close and Fountain House, where Glenn volunteered in order to learn more about mental illness, which both her sister, Jessie Close, and nephew, Calen Pick, live with.
The lack of such programs is the reason behind FacingDisability.com.
The B. F. Skinner Foundation promotes the science founded by B. F. Skinner and supports the practices derived from that science.Â In so doing, the Foundation advances a more humane world by replacing coercive techniques with positive procedures.
Features narrated animations and facts about addiction, eating disorders, depression, and other mental health concerns.Â Adds a “real-life” dimension to each disorder listed on the site.Â A must see.
