Please join us in a community screening of the indie documentary, “Angst”. Angst is a 56-minute film that explores anxiety, its causes, effects and what we can do about it. The filmmakers’ goal is to have a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety. 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 help, resources and tools. We hope through this screening we can bring kids, parents, and educators together to talk about this universal issue, share personal stories, and provide resources and tools. This experience is provided by Partners In Education Foundation. Following the film we will have Dr. Janna Greeson of Anxiety Treatment Center of Austin .


Westwood Cafeteria on February 6, 2020; 6:30-8:30 pm light refreshments will be provided. Please do not bring any children younger than 10 years old due to the video content as suggested by the filmmakers.


Dr. Greeson received her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from The University of Texas at Austin and completed her formal clinical training at the University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center. She now works as a licensed psychologist and anxiety specialist at The Anxiety Treatment Center of Austin. She treats the full range of anxiety disorders, including specific phobias, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Panic Disorder. Before completing her graduate studies, Dr. Greeson was an elementary school teacher. Through this experience, she saw firsthand the ways in which anxiety can significantly hinder students.
