SHS shedding light on depression and suicide prevention during Mental Health Awareness Week
Wednesday, October 01, 2014

Solon High School is spreading awareness about depression, mental illness and suicide prevention this week. All week during morning announcements, the health and physical education department is
sharing important information with students, including:

• Depression is a treatable illness just like cancer, asthma, diabetes or heart disease. It is not a weakness or a character flaw. Depression can be genetic and/or triggered by events in a person’s life.
• Suicide is the second leading cause of death among individuals age 15-24.
• More teenagers die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza and chronic lung disease combined.
• Half of all lifetime cases of clinical depression begin by age 14.
• According to the Ohio Department of Mental Health, 20 percent of high school students have seriously considered suicide, 14 percent have made a plan and 9 percent have made a suicide attempt.
• In 90 percent of suicides, the individuals taking their own lives previously struggled with depression or other mental illnesses.

Solon High School Show Choir Stages Cabaret Night on September 20
Wednesday, September 17, 2014

The musicians of Solon High School’s show choir, Music in Motion, will showcase their talents during the group’s annual Cabaret Night on September 20. This musical fund-raiser for the show choir is staged as a true cabaret, with attendees enjoying entertainment and dessert in an intimate coffee house setting on the Solon High School auditorium stage.

Doors open at 6 for the silent auction and the entertainment begins at 7 p.m. The funds raised from the auction and the event help support the show choir’s competition fees and travel expenses.

“Cabaret Night is a tremendous showcase of the individual talents of our students,” said show choir adviser and SHS music teacher Gary Lewis. “The remainder of the year is spent working with the group as a whole, so it benefits the students to know how their individual talent plugs in to the overall complexion of Music In Motion. Every year, I am simply amazed by the artistry and talent on our stage.”

Tickets are $18 for reserved seats and $10 for general admission. All seating includes complimentary desserts and coffee. Tickets are available online at http://solon.es/cabaret or at the door on the night of the event.
