Notre Dame Prep to host viewing of ‘Angst,’ discuss anxiety

Notre Dame Preparatory, 9701 E. Bell Road in Scottsdale, is hosting a free showing of the movie “Angst,” an independent film addressing teenage anxiety, at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday, March 27 in the Dale M. Jensen gymnasium on the school’s campus.

“At NDP, we care about the health and welfare of all of our community and will continue to challenge the social demons that try to infiltrate the lives of our students,” Principal Jill Platt said in a prepared statement.

“Our goal is to strengthen the minds, bodies and souls of our students so that they go on to live lives that employ their gifts and bring grace and dignity to themselves and the world.”

This movie event is open to the entire Scottsdale community because, according to a press release, it shines a light on the constant barrage of news, social media and peer pressure as well as the stress it causes our young people.

“Angst” runs 55 minutes and it is suitable for parents and students age 10 and up.
After the movie, a panel of experts will be available to answer questions relating to social pressure and teen anxiety.
