Join Us for a Special Screening Of Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety

Screening of Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety

Adults and children 10 and older are invited to come together and take part in a conversation about anxiety in youth after a screening of the film, Angst on Monday, January 8, from 6:30-8:30pm at the J’s Staenberg Family Complex.

Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety is a candid film about kids and anxiety. It documents the causes and effects of anxiety, as well as the proactive steps people can take to manage it. The film includes honest interviews with kids and young adults who suffer or have suffered from anxiety, and what they’ve learned. The film draws on the knowledge of experts who not only help individuals with anxiety, but who focus on the sociological causes and effects. Angst provides the opportunity to start a conversation about anxiety and how to effectively bring about hopeful outcomes.

Kosher pizza and movie snacks will be available for purchase prior to the screening. The film will be immediately followed by a panel discussion and Q & A, moderated by Aisha Sultan of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Doors open at 6pm. The event is free, but advance registration is required. To register online, visit nishmah.org or contact Tracy Patton at 314-442-3110 or tpatton@jccstl.org.
