Today’s headlines:

  • There have been no arrests after a mass shooting at an American Legion post on the north side of Champaign on Friday afternoon.

  • Calling the police simply because a person looks suspicious based on their race could become a hate crime under a measure awaiting the Illinois governor’s signature.

  • According to the latest University of Illinois Flash Index, the Illinois economy is growing at its highest rate since 2015. 

In today’s deep dive, we take a look at the barriers to getting treatment for a child with mental illness, the first in a two-part series from Side Effects Public Media.

Reporting today contributed by Reginald Hardwick, Maureen McKinney, Jim Meadows and Carter Barrett.
