We are in this together.
Attend a screening of Angst:
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. The film also includes a special interview with Michael Phelps, a mental health advocate and one of the greatest athletes of all-time. In addition, the documentary provides discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety and its sociological effects, along with the help, resources and tools available to address the condition. Appropriate for viewers aged 10 and up.

Attend a youth mental health first aid class:
Do you interact or work with adolescents? Would you like to learn new tools on how to act when a young person you know is going through a mental health issue or crisis? Youth Mental Health First Aid is the way to go.
Don't worry, we are not asking you to become a mental health professional right on the spot. We just want you to be well informed on what our youth may be experiencing and the best steps to take when seeing signs of mental health problems or addiction.
During this seminar, you will learn about several youth troubles such as anxiety, depression, substance use, and more. This course will help you identify these issues and teach you how to act under different circumstances so that you feel comfortable and confident when approaching youth in both crisis and non-crisis situations.
