Panel talk follows screening of 'Angst' documentary


Anxiety sometimes cannot be avoided, but it can help to be aware of it, to attach a name to it, particularly if you're a teen and it's a subject that's been hard to talk about.

A chance to talk about teen anxiety in the company of people who can help teens understand it is being offered at Woodside High School between 7 and 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 6, following a free showing of the film "Angst."

The 56-minute documentary includes teens and their parents sharing personal stories, and an interview with swimming champion and mental health advocate Michael Phelps. The panel discussion that follows will include students from the local area.

The Wellness Advisory Council of the Sequoia Union High School District is the host for the evening. Representatives from local mental health organizations will be available to answer questions and provide information.

The event will be held in the school's Performing Arts Center at 199 Churchill Ave. in Woodside.
