Mental Disorder Simulation

This course is available: August 2017

What does it feel like for someone with a mental disorder to experience life?

In this Mastery Project you will be introduced to the anatomy and purpose of the brain. You will research a disorder that affects the brain’s ability to thrive. You will learn about the nervous system and both sides of the brain; watch and listen to stories of people who have autism; classify different mental disorders; and investigate the criteria to diagnose mental disorders. Most importantly, you will be asked to see the world through someone else’s eyes. You will map the impacts of a disorder you select in order to create a sensory lesson that exposes someone else to the experience of living in the world with a specific mental disorder.
