Continue reading below

The Reading Coalition Against Substance Abuse and the Reading public schools’ behavioral health task force on Tuesday will hold a screening of “Who Cares About Kelsey,” a documentary that follows a teenager through the difficulties of her senior year of high school. The film tells the story of her transformation from a defiant “problem student” who has dealt with homelessness, abuse, and ADHD to a motivated and self-confident young woman. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring the film subject, Kelsey Carroll; Alison Elmer, director of student support services for the Reading public schools; and Sara Burd, behavioral health coordinator for the Reading public schools. The film contains mature content, strong language, and themes. Teenagers are encouraged to attend with their parents and/or caregivers. The event is scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Imax theater at Jordan’s Furniture in Reading. For more information about the film and to view a trailer, visit
