Join Mercer Island Youth and Family Services, MI Parent Edge and Friends of the Mercer Island Library on February 6th for a viewing of Angst, an IndieFlix film about kids and anxiety. Angst is a must-see film that is relevant to the challenges our children are facing day to day.
This compelling documentary looks at anxiety, its causes and effects, and what we can do about it.
It features interviews with children and young adults including Olympic Champion Michael Phelps who suffer or have suffered from anxiety. Read HERE about Michael Phelps’ struggle with anxiety and why he wants to help fight the stigma and raise awareness around anxiety and kids. This film is a must-see for all parents — no matter the age of your child.
Join us at the MIHS PAC for a Resource Fair starting at 6:30, the film screening at 7:00, followed by a panel discussion.
This program is for parents of kids of all ages and for students in grades 5-12.
