Skype in the Classroom - APA Experts visit your students!

Interesting project by the APA! They recruited expert APA member-presenters to Skype with classrooms/students in the big mental health discussion. Here's the description of the project from the APA site:

"Giving students accurate and accessible information about mental health is the goal of a new APA partnership with Microsoft and Skype in the classroom. The three organizations have joined forces to create a series of Skype lessons that bring psychologists to classrooms nationwide to talk about mental health issues. The 50-minute Skype presentations are designed to increase students’ understanding of mental health issues and help reduce the stigma sometimes associated with seeking mental health care."

Looks fascinating! If you decide to participate, please let us all know how it goes in the comments section!
