Mental Health Podcasts
Psych Central is proud to host a number of weekly podcasts on a variety of mental health and topics relating to mental illness. If you’re interested in being a guest on the Psych Central show, or have comments or media inquiries about either show, please contact us at [email protected] If inquiring about being a guest, please include a brief bio and a paragraph detailing your proposal.
The Psych Central Show is an award-winning, weekly podcast that approaches psychology and mental health in a casual and accessible fashion. The show features experts on conditions such as narcissism, postpartum depression, and anxiety. Also included are general topics such as coping with holiday stress, lived experience perspectives, and current events.
The Psych Central Show is hosted by Gabe Howard and Vincent M. Wales and overseen by Dr. John Grohol.
A Bipolar, A Schizophrenic, and a Podcast is a weekly show that explores life through the unique double lens of a young woman living with schizophrenia and a guy living with bipolar disorder. Each episode explores their past and present experiences as shaped by mental illness.
The podcast pulls no punches in describing lived experiences with mental illness and in commenting on the realities of life with a stigmatized illness.
A Bipolar, a Schizophrenic, and a Podcast is hosted by Gabe Howard (bipolar) and Michelle Hammer (schizophrenic).
