Podcasts for Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness blog

May is Mental Health Awareness Month (also known as Mental Health Month), celebrated in the U.S. since 1949. One in five people will be affected by mental illness in their lifetime. Each year this designated month serves as a special way to educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.

This year, Mental Health Month continues to focus on the previous year’s theme of #4Mind4Body, but expands to explore the topics of animal companionship, spirituality, humor, work-life balance, recreation and social connections as ways to boost mental health and general wellness. Some of the key messages are:

  • Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and wellbeing, and mental illnesses are common and treatable.
  • A healthy lifestyle can help to prevent the onset or worsening of mental health conditions, as well as chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. It can also help people recover from these conditions.
  • Humor, spirituality, recreation, animal companionship, and work-life balance are important for everyone but may be of special importance to people also living with chronic health conditions and those who care for them.

Podcasts offer insightful stories about mental illness, resources for mental health, and outlets for humor, meditation and balance. Many Podbean listeners (and podcasters) share how much podcasts have helped them with mental health struggles. They might use podcasts to help relax before bed or calm anxiety. Hearing others’ stories helps people dealing with mental illness feel less alone. Podcasters have often found an outlet for creativity and a sense of community through podcasting as well.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we’ve put together a special topic in the Podbean app and have listed some of our top choices below.
