Description

Named one of the Top Ten Podcasts of 2011 by The Onion's A.V. Club! The Mental Illness Happy Hour is a weekly conversation between a guest and comedian/host Paul Gilmartin, focusing on the battles we have in our heads and the damage we feel. From medically diagnosed conditions to everyday compulsive negative thinking. This podcast is not a substitute for professional mental help, it's more like a waiting room that hopefully doesn't suck. E-mail Paul at mentalpod@gmail.com or leave a voicemail at 818-574-7177. You can also visit mentalpod.com to take surveys, visit our forum, buy merchandise, or support the show with donations.

Customer Reviews

You're not alone.

I listened to the first two episodes of this podcast today, and it's really a godsend for anyone dealing with any psychological problems. There's a lot of honest discussion from Paul and his guest that can be helpful for those afraid to take the first step to getting any kind of help. Experiental advice is the easiest sort to receive when you feel like you're the only one who has some sort of problem and there's nothing you can do to fix it.

Nice dashes of comedy here and there as well - Paul and his guests can't help from being funny.

This podcast is a lifesaver.

I gave this show a shot because I like to listen to comedians talk about serious things, but I didn't anticipate the impact it would have on me. I've suffered from depression and anxiety for about as long as I can remember, and had pretty well convinced myself that I would always feel this way. But listening to so many successful, talented people talk about what they've been through has made me realize that the things I thought were character flaws are really just symptoms, and that there's a way out from under them. If you're feeling alone and hopeless, or if someone in your life is suffering and you don't understand why, this is a show for you.

Great Podcast!

What a great idea with in depth interviews about an issue seldom spoken about. Paul Gilmartin is a great comedian who has suffered with depression & addiction and come out on the other side and beaten the odds. His quest with his website and podcast is to help those in need to have a place that they can visit, share, discuss and not be alone.

The podcasts are far from morose and glum, they are fun and very insightful.

Two thumbs all the way up!
