Coping 101: Art + Tech as Therapy
Art makes people happier. It can not only lift moods, but it's been proven to carry loads of positive health benefits. Internationally recognized artist Catherine Mayer knows the powerful role arts can play in wellness, which has led her to found the L.A.U.G.H app and workshop series. An acronym for Let Art Unleash Great Happiness, the app applies sensory tools and visual arts to help users with relaxation, mindfulness and building self-esteem. Her workshops have been held in schools, nursing homes and the Fred Hutch Cancer Center - using art immersion for measurably positive health effects and improving the learning experience of chronically stressed children. Join our student hosts in learning how tech and art can combine to improve mental health, along with self-care practices that can lower stress, increase concentration and boost moods. Presented by C89.5 in partnership with Seattle Children's, Coping 101 is an ongoing series led by students in Nathan Hale High School's Radio class that destigmatizes mental health from a teen's perspective, made possible with support from Crisis Connections, Carter Subaru, Hansmire Builders and Audian.   No matter our age or background we all face challenges, and there are healthy ways to cope.
