The AFWI is pleased to announce the launch of our first animated video, which presents the core story of brain development and its impact on mental health and addiction in an accessible and visually engaging format for all audiences including the public.

The AFWI developed the video with considerable input from our partners at the Harvard Center on the Developing Child and the FrameWorks Institute. Using metaphors developed by FrameWorks and tested with audiences in Alberta, “How Brains are Built” infuses core story concepts with energy, accessibility, and high fidelity to the science.

Stay tuned for additional videos from the AFWI that will narrate specific elements of the core story in greater detail.
