The Psych Central Show Podcast is a WEGO Health Award Winner

We are honored to be the winner of the 2017 WEGO Health Award in the Best in Show: Podcast category for our outstanding weekly podcast, The Psych Central Show, hosted by Gabe Howard and Vincent M. Wales.

We are humbled by this achievement for our podcast, which offers a candid chat on mental health and psychology topics. Congratulations to Gabe & Vincent for doing such excellent work each and every week!

Best in Show: Podcast awardEach week, Gabe and Vincent tackle a different issue surrounding mental illness and mental health in society. Sometimes they have guests (and in today’s episode, they even interview me talking about the psychology of conspiracy theories), but they always have fun — and, more importantly, a thoughtful take on mental health and psychological issues. They put an amazing amount of passion and thought into crafting of each episode.

Some recent topics on the show include:

The ability to reach so many people each week in a different, engaging medium like a podcast has been an eye-opening experience. We’ve learned a lot along the way, and hope we are making some small difference in the world through the show.

Here’s how WEGO Health describes their annual awards:

Every year we receive more and more deserving Patient Leader nominations in the WEGO Health Awards. This year we had almost 2,500 nominations and close to 30,000 endorsements! A huge thank you to all of the judges that helped comb through these fantastic nominees to award our 16 WEGO Health Award Winners this year.

Gabe Howard is an Associate Editor at Psych Central, and a professional speaker, writer, and activist living with severe bipolar and anxiety disorders. He also blogs with us regularly here at World of Psychology. Vincent M. Wales has worn many hats over the years, including writing instructor, essayist, Big Brother, freethought activist, wannabe rock star, and award-winning novelist.
