Submitted by the John Glenn Middle School Parents Association

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Changing the world often requires changing the minds of people. One of the most effective ways to change people’s minds — by increasing awareness, by stimulating empathy — is storytelling, particularly visual storytelling. 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

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health challenge in the U.S., impacting 54 percent of females and 46 percent of males, with age seven being the median age of onset, according to the World Health Organization. While anxiety disorders are highly treatable, only one-third of those suffering receivePreview (opens in a new window) treatment. Everyone involved in the development of “Angst” has a personal experience with anxiety – from the producers to the interviewees.

On May 17th, the JGMS Middle School Parents Association will hold a special screening of the documentary at JGMS (99 McMahon Road) 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, led by the JGMS guidance department.

Free tickets are now available and space is limited! The screening will be held at the JGMS auditorium on Thursday, May 17th at 6 pm.
