Assignment 3: Educational Pamphlet
DUE: August 8, 2022
Note: Please save your work in a Word or PDF document.
The goal of this assignment is to create an educational pamphlet to inform the general public about mental disorders. After the completion of this assignment, you will learn about the role of a mental health professional (some of which include outreach and prevention, advocacy, etc.), such as how to identify and explain the symptoms and how to locate mental health resources.
You will choose a mental disorder from the following list. On the due date, you will submit an electronic compilation of two components: ONE pamphlet and ONE bibliography list. You will save these two components in two separate files and attach both of them during your submission.
List of Mental Disorders:
Any anxiety disorders (you may focus on one or more disorders within this category, such as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder. OCD-related and stressor-related disorders are NOT anxiety disorders)
Any eating disorders (you may focus on one or more disorders within this category, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder)
Any psychotic disorder (you may focus on one or more disorders within this category, such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, delusional disorder)
