“Angst” Screening and Q&A on Teens and Anxiety

Access Health Maine is hosting a free screening of the national documentary Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety. The film features a special interview with world-renowned athlete and mental health advocate Michael Phelps as well as teens and parents sharing deeply personal stories about the impact of anxiety on their own lives and tips and advice from prominent experts. The showing of the 55-minute film will be followed by an informative panel discussion featuring local mental health professionals. The event is open to the public and the goal is to discuss how to begin breaking the stigma of anxiety, to empower parents to connect with their teens, for teens to seek the help they need and for teachers to understand how to support their students.
