To raise awareness about students with hidden disabilities, such as ADHD and depression, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs' College of Education will sponsor a free public screening of the nationally acclaimed documentary, "Who Cares About Kelsey?"

It will be shown at 6 p.m. June 11 in University Center 116 and followed by a question-and-answer session with the documentary's maker, Dan Habib, and local education professionals.

In his film, Habib tells the story of Kelsey Carroll, who hopes to graduate from high school but faces obstacles including attending a school with a high dropout rate, ADHD, homelessness, sexual abuse and ADD.

Viewers see the transformation from a defiant and disruptive problem student to a motivated and self-confident young woman. To learn more about the film and to view the trailer, visit whocaresaboutkelsey.com.
