Gabe Howard- Bipolar Writer and Speaker on Why Mental Illness is an Asshole
Gabe Howard refers to himself as a literal red-headed step-child because he was adopted by his mom’s second husband after his father abandoned him when he was just a baby. His childhood was fraught with depression, anxiety, mood swings, and suicidal ideation because of his yet-to-be diagnosed mental illness. In 2003, when Gabe was committed to the psychiatric hospital at 25 years old, he weighed 550 pounds, was delusional, suicidal, and had just come off a manic phase that lasted about a year. His first wife had left him and he’d rented an apartment to carry out his suicidal plan because, in his words, he “didn’t want to stigmatize the house he owned and lower its resale value.” It was in the psychiatric hospital that he finally received the proper diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Now in recovery, Gabe is a prominent mental health activist who makes mental illness less scary with his entertaining articles like “Anxiety Says Everyone Hates Me” and “I Have Bipolar and I’m a Hypocrite.” He’s also a national speaker and the author of Mental Illness is an Asshole and Other Observations. Gabe hosts two different podcasts- the award-winning Psych Central Podcast and another called, Not Crazy, a podcast he co-hosts with his ex-wife. He’s proud to be a 2017 Everyday Hero, an honor given to him in a proclamation by Governor John Kasich of Ohio. Gabe makes his home in Central Ohio with his wife, Kendall and a mini-schnauzer he never wanted but now can’t live without.

[BONUS] "Jen Horonjeff is Noncompliant" with Gabe Howard
Out of Patients with Matthew Zachary
On today's episode of "Jen Horonjeff is Noncompliant," Jen talks with Gabe Howard, patient advocate, author of "Mental Illness is an Asshole," and host of the PsychCentral podcast. As a "mental health advocate," Gabe first unpacks how ridiculous it is that all mental health gets lumped together. And herein lies the problem: There is often a one-size-fits-all approach to mental health, one that usually leaves many people behind, especially those who lack essential resources like food, shelter, and insurance, as well as tech and broadband. Please tune in to hear the barriers many patients face when trying to improve and maintain their mental health, along with some of the best analogies you've ever heard. More about Gabe Howard here.
In this week's episode we listen to an interview with the insightful, engaging and wonderfully charming Gabe Howard! Gabe discusses the intersections of living with mental illness and how that informs his work as an author, podcaster and mental health advocate while Michelle uses JCVD splits as a metaphor for anxiety and depression.

A Warrior for Wellness One Man’s Epic Battle for Recovery: Interview with Gabe Howard | Episode 28
Hope Illuminated Podcast
After listening to many people describe their experiences with suicidal intensity, I and others have come to think about the clash between the will to live and the desire to escape unimaginable emotional pain as an “epic battle” between fierce forces. On one side is the warrior fighting to live, continuing to make future plans and persevering toward health and vitality. At the same time the pain this warrior is battling can be all-consuming. In this interview we hear from one man about his “epic battle for recovery” and how he bolstered the strength of his inner warrior who fought valiantly for a passion for living. Gabe Howard is not just managing his bipolar condition and hanging on the edge, he is living well. In other words mental illness and mental well-being are two different dimensions.About Gabe HowardGabe Howard headshot.jpegwww.gabehoward.comIn 2003, Gabe was formally diagnosed with bipolar disorder and anxiety and was committed to a psychiatric hospital. He weighed 550 pounds and had been living with mania for the better part of a year. He felt so hopeless that he rented an apartment so he could carry out his plan for suicide. AND at the same time he commenced treatment in the fight for his life. Once his recovery was in motion, Gabe honed his writing and speaking skills and became an activist. Today he is fighting a new battle — one to end discrimination and prejudice for other people like him who are living with mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar and schizophrenia. He is an award-winning writer contributing to The Mighty and the NAMI Advocate and publishing My Mental Illness is an Asshole and Other Observations. In addition, he produces two podcasts: the Psych Central Podcast and A Bipolar, a Schizophrenic and a Podcast.
