APA: This is Psychology

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 people’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 children’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.

Two principles are fundamental to the Movement: scientific evidence and human rights.

Bring Change 2 Mind

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.  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.

Facing Disability

Like many projects of this nature, FacingDisability.com was born out of personal experience.  In the summer of 1986, after diving into a swimming pool, Vicki Hill, sustained a neck injury resulting in quadriplegia.
During her rehabilitation, Vicki was fortunate to be able to participate in a peer- mentoring program.  The program introduced her to other people who had sustained injuries like hers a few years before.  They helped her learn how to think about her disability and live with her new body.
They offered a lot more than well-meaning help and advice.  They were the undeniably believable and unquestionably honest voices of experience.
And they were an enormous help.
But there was no peer-mentoring program to help her parents, family and friends to deal with the new life situations that they themselves were experiencing as a result of Vicki’s sudden disability. There is still virtually nothing today—no program focused on personally supporting the people around the injured person.
What’s more, even today, there are many people with new spinal cord injuries like Vicki’s who are not able to participate in peer-mentoring programs.

The lack of such programs is the reason behind FacingDisability.com.
