Sprayberry High School is hosting a special screening of the award-winning documentary ANGST, open to ALL Cobb County Parents, Students, and Teachers to open up a dialogue between local families, community leaders and mental health experts around Anxiety.  The event will feature a viewing of the 56-minute film, followed by an informative panel discussion led by Dr. Ganielle Hooper of Axis Hope LLC and other mental health experts from the community.  Invite a friend or family member!  Everyone is welcome!


Through candid interviews, ANGST utilizes the power of film to tell the stories of many kids and teens who discuss their anxiety and its impact on their lives and relationships, as well as how they’ve found solutions and hope. The film also includes a special interview with Michael Phelps, a mental health advocate and one of the greatest athletes of all-time.  In addition, the documentary provides discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety and its sociological effects, along with the help, resources and tools available to address the condition.


The 2020 Census counts every person living in the 50 states and will be completed online, by phone, or by mail on April 1st, 2020. The count is required by the U.S. Constitution and is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. Learn more about this year’s U.S. Census at
