Angst Screening and Mental Health Panel, April 19
Please join us for a screening of the documentary Angst, which explores the recent rise of anxiety in teenagers. The film seeks to educate a wide audience about how young people experience anxiety and ways they can cope. Upper school students will be viewing Angst next week, so this is a great opportunity for parents to know what their students will be discussing.
Immediately following the film, a panel of mental health experts from the University of Washington will be discussing how families can support their children in managing anxiety. Joining us will be:
- Dr. Laura Kastner, who is featured in the film. She is a nationally recognized child psychologist, parenting expert, and Clinical Professor at UW Psychiatry.
- Aaron Lyon, PhD, who is the director of the School Mental Health Assessment, Research and Training (SMART) Center and a leading researcher in school- and community-based mental health programs.
- Janine Jones, PhD, an Associate Professor in the UW College of Education. Her work focuses on providing culturally responsive mental health services in schools.
