Choosing the Right Mental Health Podcast for You
Just like finding the right therapist can take a few tries, you might have to listen to a couple of podcasts before you find a series you really connect with. The best mental health podcasts will be ones that address topics you can identify with and that have a tone and point of view that speaks to you.
Taking the time to find one or two podcast series you enjoy can pay off in the long run. It can help you effectively learn how to improve your mental health. Podcasts can also help you establish a sense of community and avoid feeling isolated as you focus on managing your mental health.
“Mental health podcasts can be a useful source of information on various topics such as wellness, self-care, mental illness, and coping strategies. Some additional mental health podcasts that are hosted by mental health professionals are “Unlocking Us” by Brene Brown, “Dear Therapists” by Lori Gottlieb, and “Where Should We Begin” by Esther Perel.”
