Event Description

Angst: raising awareness around anxiety

Angst is the most important, eye-opening documentary you will see this year. Through first-hand accounts and expert commentary, the film leads you with great care through the many facets of teen anxiety, a massive, misunderstood and rapidly growing cultural epidemic. The teenagers in the film describe their suffering with stunning openness, grace and courage. I found myself reacting on two fronts. As a clinician, I was relieved that the filmmakers were able to capture what so many of my young clients are suffering in these complicated days: the bullying, perfectionism, panic, obsession, and too often, hopelessness.

I was also surprised at the degree to which the film felt cathartic for me personally. I suffered significant anxiety as a teen, and felt myself moved by, and grateful for, every story. And thankfully, the film ends with the notes of hope we so desperately need. Whether you are a teenager, parent, educator or a mental health professional, you simply need to see this movie, and soon. And every school needs to screen this film. It’s that important.
