Programs aimed at stress free lives planned at WWU

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
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.
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 and many other
major publications across the country.
