On April 25, 2018 the West Vancouver DPAC will hold a special screening of the documentary ANGST at Kay Meek Centre, to open up a dialogue between local families, community leaders and experts. This event features a viewing of the film, followed by an informative panel discussion with special guests from The Foundry, ABLE Developmental Clinic, Child and Youth Mental Health and the West Vancouver School District. Doors open at 6:30 pm, allowing for attendees to meet with representatives from local service and support providers.
The Producers of ANGST 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 have 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.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to interact with local agencies that provide support and services to families dealing with anxiety, including the Foundry, North Shore Stress and Anxiety Clinic, and ABLE Developmental Clinic both before and after the presentation.
