Anxiety disorders are real, common and treatable...let’s talk about it!

Free community screening of “Angst: Raising Awareness About Anxiety”

Oct. 9, 2019

You are invited to a special screening of the film “Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety” on Wednesday, October 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the William Charles Lunalilo Center. The screening is free and open to the public, though we are asking for an RSVP to help us prepare. Light refreshments will be provided. 

The purpose of the screening is to educate students, school staff, families, and community members on this important topic.

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern in children and adolescents. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that by the age of 18, 1 in 3 children will have met the criteria for an anxiety disorder. While anxiety disorders are highly treatable, only one‐third of those experiencing anxiety receive treatment.

The film features candid interviews with children and young adults discussing their anxiety and its impact on their lives, along with a special interview with Olympian Michael Phelps. The documentary includes discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety, its sociological effects and resources and tools. The film is around 45 minutes. 

For more information on the film or to see the trailer (also posted above), visit angstmovie.com. For questions about the screening. Call us at (808) 982-0203.
