This will be an evening devoted to better understanding and addressing one of the most salient and challenging issues for adolescents in the United States today.
Angst has been featured in several major film festivals, morning television programs, and print publications. The goal of Angst is “to help people identify and understand the symptoms of anxiety and encourage them to reach out for help. The film and corresponding materials provide tools, resources, and above all, hope.”
