January 19, 2019

LINCOLN - Nebraska Loves Public Schools has released the first episode of a documentary series the organization has put together.

Director of Marketing Brittany Mascio tells News Talk WJAG the film series focuses on mental health in the schools.

Mascio says mental health is unavoidable and having the conversation about the topic is really important.

She says the film is called “The Mind Inside.”

“It boils down to empathy being understanding of what your neighbors and classmates are working through, and having our kids be prepared to work in a world where they are emphatic to people’s situations and how to be a good human to other students in their class.”

Mascio says the series follows three different stories of kids and look at what it’s like in school through their eyes.

The first episode is available now online at ILovePS.org.
