In observance of Suicide Prevention Week and Month, the County of Santa Clara Suicide Prevention Program will host a virtual screening and discussion panel of Angst. This documentary film tells 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. It also showcases 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.
In addition, you will receive a link to access a panel of experts directly after the screening. During this time, panelists will help debrief the film and answer your questions live.
