For most people, emotional well-being, the capacity to live a full and creative life, and the flexibility to deal with life's inevitable challenges are important objectives.
April is National Stress Awareness Month, and Active Minds, a student organization at William Woods University, will sponsor events during the month to help people achieve a higher level of psychological well-being. Events are free and open to the public.
“Depressed or in a Rut?” will be the topic of the first program, scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 3, in Dulany Auditorium. The second program, “OCD and GAD: Achieving the Best Outcomes,” will be held at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in the Library Auditorium.
Dr. Joe Wegmann P.D., LCSW, a licensed pharmacist and clinical social worker with more than 30 years of experience in psychotropic medication, is the speaker for both programs. On April 3, he will talk about depression, anxiety, and social media. He will focus on ways to get out of ruts, manage moods and anxieties and how to thrive.
On April 4, Wegmann will provide another informative hour on a couple of anxiety issues, General Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which get in life's way.
Wegmann is well known for the practical and relevant health and mental health seminars that he conducts across the country. He has written eight books on mental health issues and their management, and he pens columns, articles and blogs for his website www.pharmatherapist.com and many other major publications across the country.
