Mental Health Care for Young People On Medicaid

Feb 13, 2020

Children on Medicaid in Indiana who need inpatient mental health services are typically allowed three days in a facility, including weekends when medication approval is difficult to get.

All IN: The Friday Pitch-In

Feb 7, 2020

This week’s Friday Pitch-In kicks off with an update on Indiana’s 2020 legislative session. A bill focused on gun training for teachers heads to the House, and we talk about which Democratic gubernatorial candidates are left to run against Gov. Holcomb in November.

The opioid crisis has dominated conversations around public health for years, and Indiana has seen its consequences, from numerous opioid-related deaths to the HIV outbreak in Scott County. 


In the late 1800s, the United States was in the midst of the Second Industrial Revolution. A rising population meant more mouths to feed, and more people who needed work. Preservatives were needed to keep food fresh, or at least looking fresh, on shelves. And a lot of the labels on food products didn’t tell the whole story.

All IN: INseparable Film Tour

Jan 14, 2020

Indiana Humanities is getting ready to launch its INseparable film tour, which explores the real, and sometimes perceived, differences between rural, suburban and urban communities in the state. The tour will travel across the state to showcase five short documentaries that explore Hoosier identities.

All IN: The Resurgence of Meth

Jan 13, 2020

Most of the attention around drug addiction these days goes to the opioid epidemic. And it’s easy to understand why. It’s deadly, widespread, and its effects on society have cost a lot of money. But for years, meth has been quietly growing in popularity, and it’s becoming a larger, more complicated problem for health professionals and law enforcement to address.

All IN: Overcrowded Jails

Jan 9, 2020

Nearly half of the county jails in Indiana are overcrowded. The reasons are complicated, but in some areas the problem is getting worse. There’s been debate for years about why it’s happening, and what to do about it.
