About Anxiety & Teens

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health challenge in the U.S., affecting one-quarter of teenagers. About 80% of children and teenagers with anxiety do not get treated, and 20% will experience depression before graduating from high school. It’s time to open up a dialogue among families, school administration, and clinical experts and to raise awareness and sensitivity to this pervasive issue.

About the Film

Less than an hour long, Angst explores anxiety, its causes, effects, and what we can do about it. The power of the film lies in its candid interviews with many young people who share their story about anxiety and its impact on their lives and relationships, as well as how they’ve found solutions and hope. In addition, the documentary provides discussions with mental health experts about anxiety and resources available to address it. Visit angstmovie.com to learn more.
