Resources for Educators
School staff and educators are often the first people to notice the signs and symptoms of mental health concerns in their students. Find out how to support your students.
BlueSky is proud to share the launch of the Angst: Building Resilience Statewide California Initiative
Through a collaborative effort between iNDIEFLIX Education, California Department of Education, and CalHOPE, the Angst documentary, a film-based mental health support program, is now available to educators in California for the 2021-22 school year. Take a look at the trailer featuring California youth, who shared their stories of perseverance during the pandemic.
Thanks to the statewide partnership through the California Building Resilience Initiative, the Angst documentary and accompanying curriculum will help start more conversations between youth, parents/caring adults and educators about mental health.
The film and program address anxiety, help develop long-term resilience, strength and emotional well-being, and provide techniques to help youth deal with the mental health impacts of COVID-19.
Please visit this link to learn more about the program and register your school.
The full Angst film, discussion guides and the recorded panel will be available on-demand every first and third Wednesday of the month throughout the school year from 5-9 p.m. To view, visit the landing page: www.indieflix.com/california
“The BlueSky team has been incredibly flexible and responsive. During Distance Learning, our mental health therapists have been giving presentations in classes and holding groups at lunch and after school. In addition to their caseload of students, they are meeting with staff to support our work with students and families. We are grateful for their genuine care about our students and school.”
