Anxiety awareness

 

Parents, youth (13 years and over), school district staff and community members are invited to view the well known documentary “Angst – Raising Awareness around Anxiety” and have an opportunity to explore the topic of youth anxiety with a panel of local experts on Tuesday, Sept. 18 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.at the District Education Support Centre (DESC) in Salmon Arm.

Angst is a film that explores anxiety its causes, effects and what we can do about it. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health challenge, 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. Everyone involved in the development of “Angst” has a personal experience with anxiety – from the producers to the interviewees.

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.

Immediately following the showing of the documentary a local panel of experts will host a question and answer session.

This documentary is brought to you by: School District No. 83 (North Okanagan-Shuswap) and community partners; Salmon Arm Daybreak Rotary, North Okanagan Shuswap DPAC, Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo, CMHA – Shuswap-Revelstoke, and the Shuswap North Okanagan Division of Family Practice.Angst Raising Awareness Around Anxiety
