Is anxiety affecting you and the people living in your community? Are you a teacher who sees many students dealing with stress or anxiety? Or a parent with children experiencing anxiety? Help break the stigma around anxiety and get the discussion started today.
Angst is not available online at this time because we are currently screening the film at schools and community centers across the country. We believe it is important to follow up this film with an in-person discussion. At some point in the near future, we hope to make the film available online as well.
The conversation surrounding mental health really hits home for me. Many people don’t understand how debilitating mental illness truly can be, and even more than that, how common it is, yet people are afraid to have the serious discussions about it. I welcomed the opportunity to be a part of ‘Angst’ to further the dialogue around mental health and to help people understand the impact anxiety has on our mental state and encourage people, especially kids, to ask for help.Michael Phelps
In our world there is a stigma attached to mental health disorders. People see anxiety as a personal failing rather than a medical condition; they see it as something to be ashamed of, rather than something to be treated. In reality, anxiety is universal. It doesn’t discriminate — and it’s very treatable. We just need to acknowledge it and talk openly first.Dr. Jerry Bubrick

Here’s how it works: You indicate the behaviors that are making you concerned about your child by answering a series of questions. The Symptom Checker analyzes your answers to give you a list of psychiatric or learning disorders that are associated with those symptoms.
