ABC’s BLACK BOX Spotlights Mental Health and Available Resources in Upcoming Episode
Date:7/22/2014

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

The Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC) leads the way in providing resources, educational tools and recognition activities for thousands of entertainment and news productions that tell the stories of prevention, treatment and recovery. On July 24, 2014, at 8pm, the new ABC drama BLACK BOX will spotlight some of these resources with a special mention of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration helpline and treatment website at the end of the show.

“Each day, writers, producers and actors are helping audiences understand the complex challenges of those living with mental illness. BLACK BOX and ABC are actively demonstrating the art of making a difference, reaching millions with these powerful messages,” said Brian Dyak, President and CEO of EIC.

BLACK BOX is the story of Catherine Black (played by actress Kelly Reilly), a neurologist secretly living with bipolar disorder. The series also addresses the family and community impacts of mental illness and suicide. Reaching an average of 4.6 million viewers per week, this series is a prime example of how quickly imperative health and social issues messaging can be shared with vast audiences to inspire and inform.

Hayley Schore, Director of Development and writer for BLACK BOX, recently addressed the California Assembly Mental Health Caucus organized by EIC. Hayley described the theme of BLACK BOX and initiated the collaboration to provide mental health information and treatment resources to the audience following an episode of the show. Schore has worked as a writer/producer for Fox New Media and in script development for 20th Century Fox, Universal, Steven Bochco Productions and King World making her a model for what EIC calls the ART of making a difference.

For more information, please log on to EIConline.org/teamup or watch BLACK BOX on July 24, 2014 for access to treatment resources.
