    Last week our middle and high school students attended a viewing of Angst, Raising Awareness Around Anxiety. Angst is a 56-minute film that explores anxiety, its causes, effects and what we can do about it. The filmmakers’ goal is to have a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety. Angst features candid interviews with kids and young adults who suffer, or have suffered, from anxiety and what they’ve learned about it. The film includes discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety and its sociological effects, as well as help, resources and tools.
    "Our students were prepared for the screening during their group counseling sessions the week prior to the movie, and will debrief and discuss the movie in group counseling next week, said Ms. George, Newmark Supervisor of Counseling.  "We have received positive feedback from students and staff after the screening."

    Please visit angstmovie.com for more information about the movie and resources about anxiety.
