Join ParentMap on Tuesday, June 6, for a special screening of the brand new IndieFlix documentary Angst: Breaking the Stigma Around Anxiety. A Q&A will follow the film with executive producer Scilla Andreen and Dr. Laura Kastner, clinical professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of Washington.
This exclusive film looks at anxiety, its causes and effects and what we can do about it. Angst features interviews with kids and young adults who have or have experienced anxiety and what they’ve learned. The film also includes experts charged with helping people manage their anxiety, and those who focus on researching its causes and sociological effects, while offering tools and resources that provide hope. The project will explore a conversation about anxiety from a peer-to-peer standpoint that is intimate, honest and accessible.
Teens and tweens welcome to attend - recommended for ages 12 and up.
