I like the idea of a fun learning activity as students always struggle with these concepts. I will use it with my mental health nurisng course. One suggestion would be to choose a different name for the team. I think the name "mad" batters reinforces stigma associated with mental health disorders.

Thank you

I love the concept, and the game is cute.

One thing about this LO that disturbs me is the name of the team "Mad Bombers"; No one who has to deal with mental illness likes to be referred to as "mad", "nuts", "crazy" or the like. Perhaps you could think of a different name?

This is an awesome activity! It helps students apply the knowledge of what a personality disorder is by reading the scenarios. I accidentally rated this activity poor because I clicked on one star and it recorded Poor. Id say it was excellent.
