The producers of Angst have one goal: to start a global conversation and raise awareness about anxiety. Through candid interviews, they utilize the power of film to tell to tell the stories of many kids and teens who discuss their anxiety and its impacts on their lives and relationships, as well as how they’ve found solutions and hope. The film also includes a special interview with Olympic Gold medalist Michael Phelps – a mental health advocate and one of the greatest athletes of all-time. In addition, the documentary provides discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety and its sociological effects, along with the help, resources and tools available to address the condition.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health challenge in the U.S. impacting approximately 50 percent of people, starting around 7 years old. Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only one-third of those suffering receive treatment. Attend the screening of Angst to find out how to recognize anxiety and find help, solutions and hope.
The film will be screened for students during class time that day but they are welcome to attend the evening event as well.
