WISCONSIN RAPIDS — We all have moments of stress, sadness and anxiety, but what’s normal?
Aspirus invites you to find out at the free Aspiring Women girls’ night out, “In the Mood.” This presentation will provide a primary care perspective on the question, “When is it more than a case of the blues?” Aspirus Doctors Clinic physician, Dr. Derek Kestila and Nurse Practitioner, Natalie Schwab will discuss:
-Depression, anxiety and other mood disorders;
-Recognizing the warning signs of severe depression and suicide;
-What to do when emotions seem out of control;
-Meditation and mindfulness strategies; and
-Recommendations for meditation and mindfulness CDs and phone apps.
Ladies will also sample mood-boosting appetizers and take home recipes and an Aspiring Women gift. The admission fee for this special girls’ night out is one full-size bottle of body wash or body lotion, which will go to area families in need.
“In the Mood” will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Stevens Point Country Club on Wednesday, Dec. 6, and at the Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids on Tuesday, Dec. 12. Just pick the girls’ night out that best fits your schedule when you register.
