"Angst" Movie Screening is March 19
District hosts free screening of film that offers parents and students ways to cope with anxiety.
The 56-minute film (appropriate for ages 10 and up) will be followed by an informative discussion with these esteemed experts:
- Karin Gornick, Executive Producer, Angst
- Amia Nash, Health Science Specialist at U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
- Geoff Nugent, CUSD Behavior/Mental Health Therapist
- Rosanna Palomo, CUSD Director, Student Services
“We are seeing students and their families challenged by, and sometimes struggling with, anxiety. As educators, we want to reduce or remove barriers to our students excelling in school and in life,” said CUSD Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. ” Hosting this film offers a forum for talking about it, gaining positive strategies for dealing with it, and normalizing something that all of us experience at some time in our lives.”
