The Impact

Angst Trailer

  • Dr. John Duffy, Psychologist

    "Angst captures what so many people are suffering in these complicated days: the bullying, perfectionism, panic, obsession, and too often, hopelessness. Angst is cathartic and ends with notes of hope. Every school needs to experience this program. It's that important."

  • 9 Year Old Student

    "I'm so glad my dad got to see this film. Now he knows I'm not making it up."

  • L.K., Michigan

    “My daughter cried throughout Angst, as did I for the relief at having so many people who have experienced this disorder and who understand it. She is now 40 with 4 children of her own. We suspect her second child has anxieties. The movie was a huge plus to both of us. Thank you to all of you for making this for us and the generations that will follow.”
