stigmas associated with the mental illness selected

different treatment options

4 List community
resources for a person diagnosed with this disorder

When creating the
brochure, consider the following:

Is there a
specific population whom this brochure would be especially beneficial? For
example, a brochure illustrating PTSD may be written to address soldiers or
their family members With this in mind ensure that information and resources
are focused toward this population without specifically stating the population
on the brochure It should be obvious based upon the information included, the
visuals, and resources

Use a brochure
template Templates can be found in Microsoft Word in new documents or in Office
templates Consider visual appeal, including pictures, charts, different font
size, and colors, which adds content to the message of the brochure but is not
too overly distracting

Include a minimum
of three scholarly sources Full references should be included on the brochure
In-text citation should also be included in the brochure
