Online Class from NAMI for families with children ages 10 and up

Families with children ages ten and up are invited to register now for the online screening of the documentary Angst at 7 pm on August 25.

This event will feature a viewing of the 56-minute film, followed by an informative panel discussion led by experts in the children’s mental health field.

While the film is free, there are only 1,000 viewing tickets. Registration is required.

Through candid interviews, the makers of Angst tell the stories of many kids and teens who discuss their anxiety and its impacts on their lives and relationships. The film also includes a special interview with Michael Phelps, a mental health advocate and one of the greatest athletes of all-time. While Angst documents the struggles some people have with anxiety, it also reveals their hope for the future. Noah, a teenager in the film, describes it this way: “Anxiety doesn’t define me. It’s not just a curse; it also gives me strength.”

This screening is made possible through the financial support of NAMI Dakota County, NAMI Hennepin County, NAMI Ramsey County, NAMI Washington County, and NAMI Minnesota. For more information, please email directorofoutreach@namimn.org.
