Advocacy Unlimited, Inc.
This project was developed by Advocacy Unlimited, Incorporated. It was funded through the 2008 Campaign for Mental Health Recovery state implementation awards.
This innovative project developed an interactive board game called Mad Cool to educate its players about recovery and mental illness. The young adults on the design team were involved with all aspects of the project from development of the concept through field testing at 10 locations. Test sites included mental health centers, peer-run organizations and homeless shelters. The project used pre- and post- game evaluations to assess the increase in knowledge provided by the game. Mad Cool‘s young adult design team has expressed a great deal of satisfaction with their experience.
