Event description

Description

The Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation, Blue Ridge Behavioral Healthcare, the Suicide Prevention Council of Roanoke Valley, and Virginia Western Community College invite you to special film screening of this documentary to open up a dialogue between local families, community leaders, and experts hosted by Virginia Western Community College. The event will feature the 43 minute documentary followed by an informative panel discussion.

Producers Scilla Andreen and Karin Gornick 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’ve found solutions and hope.

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.”
