Event description

Description

The Deseret News has launched an initiative to face the growing crisis of teen anxiety in Utah. The six-month initiative will include in-depth reporting, research, analysis and events.

Part of this initiative includes hosting screenings of “Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety” for parents and teens accross the state of Utah. The film, an IndieFlix documentary, addresses what anxiety is — its causes and effects, and what can be done about it.

After the screenings, Deseret News Opinion Editor Boyd Matheson will moderate a panel that features Karin Gornick, producer of “Angst,” and Jenny Howe, a licensed therapist with degrees in psychology and child and family studies. The panel will discuss how to begin breaking the stigma of anxiety, the role of social media in teen anxiety and what parents can do to help their kids.
