“For the Records” – learning about mental illness
Doris Rusch, Anuradha Rana

For the Records is an interactive documentary about mental health, particularly OCD, ADD, eating and bipolar disorder. Including film clips, interviews, photo essays and games, it aims to increase understanding of these disorders. People with lived experience of the represented mental health issues have been actively involved in the conceptualization and design of the project. For the records is an interdisciplinary effort bringing together DePauls cinema and game development program as well as the School of Nursing. An intended application area of this project is mental health education. The presentation covers a life demonstration of games and other media pieces with an in-depth discussion of the design process and its various iterations with a special emphasis on metaphor identification and modification over time and across platforms.
