IndieFlix Shines the Light on Anxiety with Must-See Documentary
ANGST: RAISING AWARENESS AROUND ANXIETY
A new film created to start community conversations about anxiety

Presented by The Lotus School of Liberal Arts

A film and panel discussion about how anxiety disorders are real, common and treatable

In response to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from our first Angst screening in Doylestown, PA, we have scheduled a second screening date. We will show the film at Lehigh University on May 1 at 7 p.m. The audience from the first showing said that they wanted to invite, beg, or drag several others to a showing — Here is your opportunity!

It is a powerful film about the nature of anxiety and anxiety disorders in young people. After the screening, a panel of doctors, psychologists and educators will host a forum for questions and answers. The event is meant to break the stigma of talking about these disorders and to leave feeling hopeful about growth and management.
Screening will be held at
Lehigh University, Rauch Business Center Room 184
621 Taylor Street, Bethlehem, PA 18015
Evening co-sponsored by:
Red Hill Medical + Wellness and
Counseling Psychology Program @ Lehigh University

 

IndieFlix, a leading independent online streaming platform, along with its non-profit arm, the IndieFlix Foundation, is sparking a global conversation about anxiety through screenings of its brand-new documentary, Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety. The Lotus School of Liberal Arts will hold a special screening of the documentary to open up a dialogue between local families, community leaders and experts. The event will feature a viewing of the 56-minute film, followed by an informative panel discussion.

“Everybody needs to know that anxiety disorders are real, common and treatable instead of viewing them as a personal choice or something to be ashamed of,” said Dr. Jerry Bubrick, Senior Director of Anxiety Disorders Center, Child Mind Institute. “Getting help early is crucial in giving people the tools they need to feel better. We just need to start the conversation.”
