 Improving one's mental health plays a key role in the betterment of their overall peace of mind and clarity. With the various ways to take care of and improve our mental health and state of wellbeing, there are unique options out there that one can explore. Listening to a wellness podcast is an excellent way to learn more in-depth about mental health challenges and common interventions.

The convenience and accessibility of podcasts makes it a medium that can help people feel empowered, involved, and entertained. Whether you're interested in specific topics or simply want to enjoy different forms of dialogue, there is something for everyone when it comes to podcasting. Here at Amwell, we are proud to contribute our own series of CBTalks podcasts  focused on promoting overall wellness among individuals from all walks of life.

For those seeking to gain a variety of perspectives, podcasts offer an invaluable resource. Through conversational interviews with people who have shared their stories, listeners can benefit from learning about a person's current or past experiences. Not only do these topics provide interesting information, but they also offer useful advice as well.

Podcasts are a great resource, especially useful to families who want to learn more about important topics. From fostering healthy relationships to relieving stress and worry, podcasts can offer invaluable advice that can be put into practice. Not only do they help us understand our individual issues better, but also give us effective methods to tackle them both immediately as well as in the long run. In addition, podcasts serve as an inspirational source when we feel like making positive changes in our lives.

On episode 20 of the CBTalkspodcast, Dr Jorge Palacios has an insightful chat with Marcel Somerville about how the media can affect one's mental health, as well as what it is like to become a parent. Before his long-standing fame on ITV's Love Island, many may remember him from the 00s boy band Blazen' Squad. His appearance on the third series of Love Island catapulted him into the public spotlight.

The episode delves into Marcel's journey through life - from the discouraging incidents of childhood, to celebrity status and now being a parent. Even further, it addresses how his mental health has been impacted along with the way.
