"I feel like this kind of work makes me a lot more passionate about health overall. And it helps me be an advocate for things that I care about... STAND gave me those skills to be an advocate."

As a first generation American from a family of Zanzibar immigrants, Aidah Hawkins knows a lot about Community. Currently in college pursuing a degree in nursing, she's already quite accomplished at a young age. Aidah helped start the need-based collective Sister Circles, which brings together Zanzibar Youth to help one another navigate life's challenges through a shared experience. She's also a graduate of STAND, where she led advocacy efforts in prevention work around marijuana and tobacco use. In this peer-to-peer conversation we explore ways to create healthier communities, practical coping strategies to improve youth mental health, and the impact of marijuana and tobacco on communities of color. 

Presented by C89.5 in partnership with Seattle Children's with support from the Washington State Department of Health's You Can campaign, Coping 101 is led by students in Nathan Hale High School's Podcast Club with a mission to destigmatize mental health from a teen's perspective. The series is made possible with local support from 4Culture, Hansmire Builders and Compass Health - NW Washington's Behavioral Healthcare leader. No matter our age or background we all face challenges, and there are healthy ways to cope. Get started with more episodes, and find community-relevant resources online at c895.org/coping101
