Documentary Film Screening & Panel Discussion
with Filmaker Laura Morton Anxious Nation
Anxious Nation takes a crucial look into the crisis of anxiety and mental
health in America, especially its impact on kids and families. In 2022, the
U.S. surgeon general warned of a devastating mental health crisis among
adolescents, creating a national emergency, which was exacerbated by the
Covid-19 pandemic. The film sets out to lift the shroud of shame around
mental health, highlighting kids and families, who bravely share their
stories, while giving emotional insights into how anxiety shows up in our
children’s lives and impacts families. The filmmakers offer deep insights on
how we got here and what we can do to harness anxious energy for good.
Above all, the film offers hope. Our expert panel will feature Laura Morton,
New York Times best-selling author and the co-director, producer, and writer
of Anxious Nation as well as local mental health experts.
