A colorful background overlaid with the words "Coping 101, Depression & Co-Occurring Disorders: Podcast & Resources"

No matter our age or background, some of us are just naturally more tense, reactive or prone to unhealthy coping tactics when feeling overwhelmed and it’s all about managing the curve balls that come our way. In addition to a basic education around Depression and related mental health issues, our student hosts join Seattle Children’s Dr. Elizabeth McCauley to explore practical coping strategies like choosing healthier foods, regulating sleep cycles, routine physical activity and positive socializing. No one is immune to Depression but we can all learn to cope in healthier ways, with this episode and related resources as a great start.
