Presenting a new documentary on juvenile mental health, Riley Children’s Health



Indianapolis, Indiana – Riley Children’s Health uses the medium of cinema to encourage children to talk about their emotions and mental health.

In 2020, the state of Indiana published an Adolescent Health Fact Sheet which stated that 28% of kids between the ages of 12 and 17 had experienced behavioral, emotional, or mental health issues.

The healthcare system wants to change it because that is a large number of children.

Riley is presenting a documentary at Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Monday called “Racing to Respond” in an effort to educate people of all ages about the mental health of children.

The film centers on the Eugenios and Scott families, as well as the professionals who assisted them in overcoming adolescent mental health issues.

Sen. Michael Crider of Indiana, together with Drs. Michele Thorne and Leslie Hulvershorn will be present at the exhibition to discuss how individuals may cooperate to improve the situation.

The film opens at Gainbridge Fieldhouse at 6 p.m. A prescreening party is scheduled for 5 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session at 7 p.m. with the film.
