The mental Illness Happy Hour – Comedian Paul Gilmartin hosts a weekly, hour-long audio podcast consisting of interviews with artists, friends and the occasional doctor. The show is geared towards anyone interested in or affected by depression, addiction and other mental challenges which are so prevalent in the creative arts. Paul’s hope is that the show and this website will give people a place to connect, smile and feel the return of hope. The biggest myth about mental illness is that you are alone and there is no help.
Help starts with talking to someone who knows exactly how you feel. So stop staring out the window with your jaw open thinking about what might have been. Open up. Read the message board. Post stuff. Ask for help. Give help. Take a survey so we can get to know mental illness better.
This site is not intended to replace the need for medical diagnosis. Please leave that to professionals. It’s not a doctor’s office. Think of it more as a waiting room that doesn’t suck.
