About CYKE About CYKE Picture

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded funding to CYKE for a number of projects.

Emotions Postpartum
Funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)
The Emotions Postpartum project created a website for doctors and patients about postpartum depression. An estimated 1 out of every 10 new mother suffers from postpartum depression, but many women never seek help. Our website provides vital information for identifying this problem and taking steps toward getting better.

The E. Motion Express™
Funded by National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD),
The E. Motion Express project produced a program that teaches pre-school children about different emotions and coping skills. Guided by a 3-D animated train, children learn about emotions through the use of fairytale characters. In its first journey, the E. Motion Express visited the Monkey King at the Anger Stop, Tripitaka in Worryville, Piggy caught in Dependency Depot, and Sandy down in Depression Valley. Take a ride with the E. Motion Express on its first video trailer.

My Brain, My Body
Funded by National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA),
The My Brain, My Body project completed a science curriculum for middle school students about alcohol abuse. A complete online curriculum for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders with accompanying teacher manuals are available. Please take a look at the My Brain, My Body website and let us know what you think.

In addition to our online curriculum, we produced three reality based video documentaries:

Real Stories of Addiction
This video focuses on the lives of two teens addicted to alcohol. The stories of Shannon and Jack reveal the misguided assumptions many teens believe, such as (1) only "at risk" individuals become addicts and (2) experimentation is harmless. By witnessing the struggle of these two teens, audiences will learn about both the physical and psychological damage of addiction.

Under the Influence
This video examines the issue of addiction among teenagers and the contributing factors of peer pressure. Along with offering a variety of coping skills that teens can use to deflect pressure to drink alcohol, this video includes interviews with former abusers of alcohol and drugs, as well as discussions on why they pressured other teens to drink.

Life Stolen
Every 30 minutes, someone in the United States dies in an alcohol-related crash. This touching video addresses the stories of three teens whose lives were devastated by an alcohol-impaired driver. One teen loses her father, another is handicapped for life, and the final story tells of a teenager that is killed by a drunk driver.

Autism Gateway
Funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH),
The Autism Gateway project is currently still underway. The purpose of this project is to create a website that will help physicians better detect and help people with autism. While it is of the utmost importance to diagnose autism before the age of three, this website will also support the care of people with autism throughout their lives.

Suicide Prevention
Funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH),
The Prevent Suicide project produced a website for patients, parents, physicians, and teachers. This website provides a portal to vital information on the prevention of suicide, identification of mental illness, and treatment alternatives.
