Oftentimes, individuals who experience a mental and/or substance use disorder feel isolated and alone. Yet, every year millions of Americans experience these conditions. It’s important that we offer support to individuals facing mental and/or substance use disorders. In fact, we need to create environments and relationships that promote acceptance. Too many people are still unaware that prevention works and that mental and/or substance use disorders can be treated, just like other health problems.
Mental and/or substance use disorders affect people of all ethnicities, ages, genders, geographic regions, and socioeconomic levels. They need to know that help is available. These individuals can get better, both physically and emotionally, with the support of a welcoming community.

Peyton Riekhof Foundation for Youth Hope Plays for Peyton
The Play for Peyton tournament is dedicated in memory of Peyton Riekhof, who played softball from 2002-2012 in the HSE-Fishers Youth Softball League and through her junior year at HSE High School. Peyton struggled with many years of depression and died from suicide in July of 2013. All the proceeds from this ‘volunteer run’ tournament will go to The Peyton Riekhof Foundation for Youth Hope which dedicates all donations to specific programs that increase awareness and education around mental illness/depression and suicide prevention. The tournament takes place from 7 a.m. – 11 p.m. at Olio Fields behind Hamilton Southeastern High School. Dr. Rob Bell will speak around 12:30 p.m. to the softball teams and crowd on mental toughness.
