Organizer: Shaheen Lakhan

Authors/Editors: Maria DiDanielli, Megan Campanella

Curriculum Development Specialist: Nick Youssefi

Character Designer: Annegret Reimann

Flash Developers: Dimitri Kokkinos, Nicholas Jacob


The Neuropsychiatry for Kids educational project aims to instruct young students on neuroscience, neuroanatomy and functions, common neurological and mental health disorders (e.g. Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, autism, bipolar disorder, depression, eating disorders, learning disabilities, Parkinson's disease, and schizophrenia), and the effects of stigmatization. We would like a comprehensive Flash execution as an entire elementary school study session, with crosswords, games, flashcards, cartoons, comics, electronic discussions with mental health professionals, study plans, and assessment tools. Coloring pages (for brain structures), crossword puzzles, word searches, trivia, and matching are all good for elementary levels. After its creation, we would ultimately target elementary school, teacher associations, and education conferences to promote such study.

Format: Macromedia Flash (download)

Work To Date:

  • Recruited volunteer web designers, programmers, and educators to the project.
  • The project has been listed in the MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching) material directory and has been accepted for peer-review.

Prototype 1:  Dimitri Kokkinos has created an simple Flash that displays each mental health condition associated with a characters (designed by Annegret Reimann) alongside a brief comprehendible description (authored by Maria DiDanielli).
