Brain Waves Podcast

Podcast produced by students, for students, designed to educate about and destigmatize mental health


The Brain Waves podcast was conceptualized during the StAMINA Youth Mental Health Ideathon competition, where the idea won first place. Brain Waves’ first season will start in early April on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. Each episode will tackle a different mental health topic, including stressors, depression, coping mechanisms, and much more.

By combining content like student stories, interviews, and “field trip” visits to mental health sites, Brain Waves will be both entertaining and educational. Listening to the podcast is a great first step into mental health advocacy for students and window into youth perspectives on mental health for adults.
