Raising Awareness Around Anxiety

angst-logoDo you suffer from anxiety? Does your child or partner? Come to Prep on the evening of February 8 to learn how to cope and find hope.

Join us at 6:30 p.m. for a screening of Angst, Raising Awareness Around Anxiety, a new documentary that explores anxiety, its causes and effects, and what we can do about it. The film features candid interviews with real kids and teens and Olympian and mental health advocate Michael Phelps. Also, 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 54 percent of females and 46 percent of males, with age seven being the median age of onset, according to the World Health Organization. While anxiety disorders are highly treatable, only one-third of those suffering receive treatment.

We want to start a conversation! Stay after the screening of the 56-minute film for an informative panel discussion led by Katie Garrett, founder of Garrett Educational Consulting. Children ages 11+ are invited to the movie screening and to participate afterward in an open dialogue facilitated by Prep staff Katie Edde, Melissa Guarnaccia, and Latoya Pousa.

The screening will be held in Prep’s new Media Center in the Fine Arts Building. Click here to RSVP and register for childcare for Prep students and their siblings who are ages 2-14.

We are inviting the public, so bring a friend!
