Oak-Land Middle School, in partnership with the Youth Service Bureau, is pleased to offer a free screening of the award-winning documentary, Angst, a 56-minute film and virtual reality experience that explores anxiety, its causes, effects and what we can do about it.
Angst features candid interviews with kids and young adults who suffer, or have suffered, from anxiety and what they’ve learned about it. The film includes discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety and its sociological effects, as well as offers help, resources and tools.

Here is what some are saying about the documentary Angst:
"Angst is the most important, eye-opening documentary you will see this year. Through first-hand accounts and expert commentary, the film leads you with great care through the many facets of teen anxiety, a massive, misunderstood and rapidly growing cultural epidemic.” 
~Dr. John Duffy, Clinical psychologist, best-selling author of “The Available Parent”, parenting and relationship media expert
"Middle school and high school anxiety in our community is very real, this was an excellent way to educate us about the brain, our feelings, and reactions to anxiety, the challenges it can cause in individuals and family life, as well as offer some helpful solutions!"
~Kim Muench, Jai certified Parent Guide 
"In our world there is a stigma attached to mental health disorders. People see anxiety as a personal failing rather than a medical condition; they see it as something to be ashamed of, rather than something to be treated. In reality, anxiety is universal. It doesn’t discriminate — and it’s very treatable. We just need to acknowledge it and talk openly first."
~Dr. Jerry Bubrick Senior Director, Child Mind Institute
