Coping 101 is presented by C89.5 in partnership with Seattle Children’s, producing monthly student-led podcasts that destigmatize a range of mental health topics from a teen’s perspective. No matter our age or background we all face challenges, and there are healthy ways to cope.

Just as CPR training prepares people without medical backgrounds to help someone who is having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid trains people to help someone who is at risk of developing a mental health problem or who is going through a mental health crisis. In this episode we’re joined by Jordann Doler, Mental Health First Aid Program Manager for Valley Cities Behavioral Health Care. Jordann shares her own mental health journey which led to her work in social services, and explains how Mental Health First Aid training can help save lives.  Find the full episode here: https://www.c895.org/c895-seattle-childrens-present-coping-101-coping-therapy/

Art and activism are intertwined, and music has always been at the heart of major movements. Facing today’s Mental Health crisis, Cameron Lavi-Jones – frontman of Seattle Alt-Rock band King Youngblood – is determined to use his art and influence to dismantle the stigma and raise awareness. Along with fellow bandmates, Cameron leads Hold Your Crown – a nonprofit on a mission to abolish the stigmatized cultural biases young people face when they experience depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, addiction, and in certain cases more extreme mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and bi-polar disorders.
