The Wings Music Fest is presented in memory of Joe M. Chmielewski. Joe was a talented musician who loved creating music and building guitars. Joe's struggle with depression began in his teen years with his first attempt at suicide on April 13, 2007. Up until this point his family had no knowledge of his depression. After this attempt on his life, every effort was made through medication, therapy and hospital stays to help him deal with his pain. For some people with depression, these treatments are not enough, as was the case with Joe. On November 8, 2009 he died, a victim of suicide. It is important to remember that suicide victims are not trying to end their lives, they are trying to end their pain.
There are many statistics about depression and suicide. It is our goal to give a face to those who suffer, to give a voice to those who need help. Through opening up conversations and supporting organizations who help young people, we hope to help teens and their families understand this disease.
