10 Inspirational Mental Health Podcasts That You Shouldn’t Miss At Any Cost

1. Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown

This is one of the best mental health podcasts on Spotify that you cannot and should not miss. Mayim Bialik is a famous household name, especially if you’re a huge ‘The Big Bang Theory’ fan like me! One of the major reasons why her podcast is so popular is because she knows what she’s talking about, and it’s really not a surprise, since she has a Ph.D. in Neuroscience.

Each of her episodes focuses on a specific topic revolving around mental health, and she even explains the science behind it. For example, suppose she is talking about Generalized Anxiety Disorder; she won’t just speak about it, she will also explain what it really is in great detail and the science behind it.

She will cover everything about it, and by the end of it, you won’t just understand it a lot better, you will also feel braver about dealing with it in a healthy and positive way.

2. Mental Illness Happy Hour

This mental health podcast is hosted by comedian, Paul Gilmartin and is easily one of the most popular and well-loved podcasts out there. What makes his podcast amazing is the fact that he always invites a diverse group of guest speakers, and occasionally also invites, doctors, and psychologists.

He speaks about mental illness and mental health very openly and honestly, and never holds back. He focuses on subjects like addiction, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and trauma and creates a very safe space for people going through these challenges. The way he speaks about everything further normalizes the way we talk about mental health, and never once does it feel like we are talking about something taboo or difficult.

4. The Hilarious World Of Depression

This is easily one of the best mental health podcasts on Spotify. The most beautiful thing about John Moe’s mental health podcast was that he used to invite all these celebrities and famous people, who talked about their struggles with clinical depression in a really humorous and brutally honest way. And that is exactly what made his podcast truly one of the best and most relatable.

Anybody who heard what he and his guests had to say felt a little less alone in their struggles and felt stronger and braver when it came to dealing with it all. Even though the podcast’s producer, APM broke many hearts when he discontinued the podcast in 2020, you can still find all 96 episodes on Spotify and binge to your heart’s content!
