A Short Film With Long-Term Impact

80% of children with a diagnosable anxiety disorder are not getting treatment. Children with untreated anxiety are at a higher risk to perform poorly in school, engage in substance abuse, and generally miss out on important social experiences. Educators have the opportunity to supply kids with tools to articulate their feelings. The earlier on in life we learn to talk about mental health, the more equipped we are to identify and deal with mental health issues in the future.
