A high energy show filled with plenty of dancing, singing and performing was held on Friday, all in the name of mental health.

For the 15th year in a row, the Quinn family held their annual Family Bash to recognize those suffering from mental illness. The family is actively involved in the National Alliance on Mental Illness for our area and this is just one way they support the cause.

"What we do here is we have door prizes, three hours of music, snacks things to drink and we play mostly classic rock, but we try to do a little bit for everybody,"said Vice President of Nami, Pat Quinn.

More than 200 caregivers, family members and friends of mental health filled the Zanesville- Muskingum Welcome Center to participate in the free concert. This is a time for those affected by mental illness to let loose.

"We have family members from throughout Ohio, Michigan, Chicago and the look on the faces of the people here dancing forgetting their problems for one day and just having fun and laughing and singing along makes it all worth while, " said Nami President, Paul Quinn.
