The Mental Illness Happy Hour

The Mental Illness Happy Hour is a long-running weekly podcast hosted by stand-up comedian Paul Gilmartin, former host of the TBS series Dinner and a Movie. Gilmartin started the podcast in 2011 when he realized that, despite his years of experience as a therapy patient, his depression had unexpectedly returned. Since then, the Mental Illness Happy Hour has grown into an acclaimed and cherished series of intimate, empathetic conversations normalizing discussions of mental health, and in 2018 Gilmartin received a Webby Award for Best Host in the Podcast category. Recent guests include licensed therapist and advice columnist Lori Gottlieb, comedian and podcaster Keith Kingbay, and entrepreneur Elle Huerta, who created the Mend app. As the podcast notes, "It's not a doctor's office. Think of it more as a waiting room that doesn't suck." Visitors may also want to check out the site's blog featuring mental health-related posts by guest authors and Gilmartin, as well as the podcast's online community forum. Those interested can download all of the episodes released in the past year at the link above, and listeners can also subscribe via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, and other platforms.
