A Day in the Life of a Young Person with Anxiety

Anxiety disorders are one of the most prevalent mental health challenges in youth and although there is a growing amount of research that focuses on anxiety in youth, including its symptoms and the factors that contribute to it, this research does not always look at what youth think and feel. What is often missing is what it is like to be a youth living with anxiety.

With that in mind, Dr. Roberta Woodgate and her team undertook a research project entitled “Youth Voices: Their Lives and Experiences Living with an Anxiety Disorder.” Funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the project involved youth sharing their experiences through interviews and taking photographs. Roberta and her team reviewed the interviews and photographs and developed themes. Working with local choreographer Philippe-Alexandre Jacques, the themes were then developed into a series of 5 dance vignettes that details the experiences of young people living with anxiety. The dances were recorded in a variety of public settings throughout Winnipeg, resulting in a final collection of five videos produced by Wookey Films. The videos are available in English, French and Cree.
