Fray Gilabert Jofré amparando a un loco

[Father Gilabert Jofré protecting an insane person], by Joaquin Sorolla Bastida, 1887 (Aldana, San Miguel, & Moreno, 2010)

To learn the science of mind and behavior, we begin by reflecting upon the experience of persons with mental illness. Let’s start the week by spending a couple minutes with a painting depicting an experience of mental illness. What is happening here? What comes to mind? Why? Follow the white rabbit.

Now let’s read a poem. Read it twice. What emotions do you feel? Want to know even more? Wander down the rabbit hole.

Now let's play a game

Remember Memory? Match a pair of hippo cards in the first of three short games. Once a match is made, you earn an opportunity to learn this week’s material. Don’t like games? Scroll down for textbook readings.


Zoom out: spend five minutes exploring population-health datasets to understand the experience of mental illness locally, nationally, and internationally.

Let's keep playing!
