Among 10-14 year olds it is the 3rd leading cause of death and among 15-34 year olds it is the 2nd leading cause of death. Suicide is closely associated with depression and anxiety, our number on mental health issue. Yet less than one third of sufferers receive any form of treatment!
In her presentation Dr. Karin Drummond will discuss how to obtain optimal wellness, for both your mind and body, though a Triad of Wellness. Do not be fooled by the simplicity of her solutions. She has personally obtained wellness, and helped thousands of her patients do the same. Learn how to be happy, healthy and well in body and spirit, with Dr. Karin Drummond.

YAAAY! We’ve got a barn burner lined up tonight for Y’all : -) Rusty Bladen www.RustyBladen.com will be entertaining our Audience with his quick wit, high energy Rock- Americana music and just plain old ‘gotta love him’ presence. Rusty is a star folks, and he knows how to put on a show – not to mention, he’s one of the best Singer-Songwriters in the Midwest. Speaking of STAR power – Cari Ray https://www.reverbnation.com/cariray is beginning to make quite a name for herself among the Singer-Songwriters from the area. Her latest CD ‘Swagger’ is wonderful. Her onstage sound is among the best we’ve featured and her personality is equally impressive. She’s a Country – Alternative – Bluesy kinda gal and we think you’ll love her. Paul Matthew Lauck – www.PaulMatthewLauck.com will also be in the house – sharing the stage with Rusty & Cari ‘in the round’ this evening. Paul’s music is decidedly romantic – ballad in nature and his beautiful vocals are simply perfect for his music. Lauck has been performing on a regular basis for several years now and has developed a nice following for his music.. . but there’s always room for more fans and we encourage you to share the music of these terrific Singer-Songwriters with us this evening.
