Podcasts to listen to if you live with a mental health concern

Our thoughts can become filled with messages about everything from items to purchase to news from friends to “to do” lists and more. There are times when I need a break from reading countless messages on my computer. I enjoy pausing and listening to podcasts.


Yes, I have been known to multi-task. I can take care of household chores or some other activity while listening to podcasts. Special moments are found when I sit in my comfy chair, close my eyes and enjoy the message provided.


Whatever way you find to explore podcasts, some of them are definitely worth the time.


Each presenter offers their own unique perspective. Some of the speakers are authors, physicians, teachers and some people are going through mental health issues and have found a way of sharing their message in hopes of helping others.


The podcasts are not a prescription from a doctor. The messages are meant to encourage and let people know they are not alone in dealing with mental health concerns.


Here are a few of my favorite podcasts.



Dr. Michelle Bengston is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist. Her messages are encouraging and informative.



Kay Warren is the co-founder of Saddleback Church. She and her husband Rick Warren share personal family experiences of their journey with mental health concerns.


www.nami.org is a site filled with information about mental health concerns. From support groups to podcasts there are numerous ways to find help.


Try to take some time and listen to these and other podcasts about mental health concerns. You may find answers to questions or you may find a new resource for help.


Share in the comments what you discover. Have a great day!
