The Wyoming Community Conversation Coalition (WCCC) will be hosting a screening of the documentary “Angst” in Wyoming Middle School’s Fay Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23. The screening will be accompanied by a panel conversation and a question and answer opportunity.
“Angst” is a documentary designed to raise awareness around anxiety. The film includes interviews with kids, teens, educators, experts, parents and Michael Phelps. The goal of the film is to help people identify and understand the symptoms of anxiety and encourage them to reach out for help.
Separate from the public screening, the film will be screened for all high school and middle school staff on Wyoming City Schools’ professional development day on Tuesday, Jan. 22. Screenings for middle school and high school students are scheduled for Friday, Jan. 25. Additional information will be sent to school families about the student screenings in January.
WCCC is a partnership among the City of Wyoming, Wyoming City Schools, Wyoming Parent School Association and Wyoming Youth Services. The public screening of “Angst” is part of the WCCC event series. Past event topics have included student brain health, a screening of the documentary Beyond Measure and a conversation on substance use data and vaping.
