Amazing Podcast

I have been listening to the mental illness happy hour for over 3 years. This podcast helped me to shed the stigma of therapy and get myself the help I deserved. In 3 years I’ve gone from a massively codependent depressed anxious man to a slightly codependent rarely depressed rarely anxious man. I owe a great deal in part to the candor of Paul and his guests.

While listening to the podcast I have come across major revelations through things Paul and/or his guests share. I take note of the quotes and dissect them with my therapist. We discuss and find the reason why each quote affects me.

I owe a great deal of my personal recovery to this show. I generally don’t review podcasts or support them financially (I know, I’m terrible) but I have been a long time (over a year and a half) Patreon patron of the show.

You are not alone.

Worth listening!

Paul has created a safe space for guests as well as listeners to share their stories of struggle and triumph with mental illness issues. He has mostly non-celebrity guests, and reads anonymous surveys from listeners. He adds his own levity and humor to the seriousness of it all, without making light of it. It's worth listening.

i love it

i have been looking for a good podcast for a while and stumbled upon this one. clicked a random episode and fell in love. he is very passionate about what he’s doing & you can hear it in the way he talks. his guests are always perfect. the right amount of humor is in there but he’s also able to get very serious. i get chills when i listen. i am so excited to listen to more!! <3 :)
