Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety is a candid film about kids and anxiety. It documents anxiety, the causes and effects, 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 also draws on the knowledge of experts who not only help individuals with anxiety, but who also focus on research about the sociological causes and effects. Angst provides the opportunity to start the conversation about anxiety and how to effectively bring about hopeful outcomes.
