Mental Health Awareness Opportunities for Families
Wednesday, April 25, 2018 8:00 AM

The Justice Page PTA and the Washburn Parent Council present two special screenings of the film, Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety. The film interviews teens who share stories about anxiety and its impact on their lives, as well as how they’ve found solutions and hope. This film is 55 minutes long and is appropriate for fifth grade and older. The film will be followed by a Q&A session, and helpful resources will be distributed. Justice Page eighth-grade students will be watching and discussing the film in their advisory classes. Admission is free, but donations at the door are welcome to help defer the cost. Families and community members are invited to attend any of these events:

Wednesday, April 25: Viewing of “Angst” and after-film Q&A with Justice Page therapist and social workers. Justice Page Auditorium, 6:30 pm

Monday, May 7: “Brave Parenting: How to Help Your Teen Cope with Anxiety and Stress” presentation with psychologist Kathryn Hecht. Learn what anxiety is, red flags to look for in teens, and parenting strategies that foster healthy coping behavior. Washburn Auditorium, 6:30 pm
