you’ll be doing a “mini research paper”. The National Institute for Mental Health has an abundance of information about mental health and mental illness. Pick a topic from their topics list and explore their information. https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/index.shtml
THE TOPIC I CHOOSE WAS DEPRESSION
1. What is the topic you chose?
2. Give us 4 interesting symptoms/pieces of information that are related to your topic.
3. What are some 2-3 interest stats regarding your topic? (scroll down to the bottom of the page to find links to statistics on your topic)
4. Mental health still carries a stigma. What are some ways we can help to eliminate the stigma of being diagnosed with a mental illness? (you may want to explore this website: https://bringchange2mind.org).
Feel free to add any more interesting tidbits you discover about the topic you chose. Look around the websites and learn some more about mental health.
Remember that this needs to be like a research paper. a minimum of 5 paragraphs and you need to include some citations and any references you use (you’ll need to include the NIMH website link for your chosen topic and any other sites you used).
