Healthy Minds is partnering with IndieFlix, a leading independent online streaming platform, and its non-profit arm, the IndieFlix Foundation, to spark a global conversation about anxiety through screenings of its documentary, “Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety”. On May 20, 2020 at 5:00PM, Healthy Minds will hold a special VIRTUAL screening of the documentary to start a dialogue between local families, community leaders and experts. The event will feature a viewing of the 56-minute film, followed by an informative panel discussion, with local experts: Dr. Bobby Jain, Psychiatrist, Dr. Roddy Strobel, Psychiatrist, Mark Alexander, PhD, Kristi Edwards, LPC-S, and Charmaine Caldwell, PhD, LPC.
Producers Scilla Andreen and Karin Gornick have one goal: to start a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety. Through candid interviews, they utilize the power of film to tell the stories of many kids and teens who discuss their anxiety and its impacts on their lives and relationships, as well as how they’ve found solutions and hope. The film also includes a special interview with Michael Phelps, a mental health advocate and one of the greatest athletes of all-time. In addition, the documentary provides discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety and its sociological effects, along with the help, resources and tools available to address the condition.
