Gabe Howard-Bipolar Educator

Gabe Howard thought his life was ended when he received a bipolar disorder diagnosis at age 26. Since he didn't know anyone who was successfully managing mental illness, he believed that his prospects were grim. He was alone, despondent, and powerless. However, he was able to recover after years of arduous work, family support, therapy, and much study.

My Story

But he would never forget the fear that accompanied his diagnosis. It became his life's work, in fact. "I wanted to be really, really vocal, so when the next person is diagnosed with mental illness, they think, you know there’s this one guy. He’s loud and seems to be doing OK,"he says


Definitely vocal. Gabe is a highly sought-after speaker, author, and award-winning podcast host these days. He has given several speeches in front of groups of people over the years, and he is still considered the authority on issues related to mental health and wellbeing, bipolar disease, and the difficulties that society and politics present for those who suffer from mental illness. Gabe had the great opportunity of giving a speech at Oxford University in England in November of 2022.


The only openly bipolar individual who broadcasts a podcast for a major media firm is Gabe. You may find Inside Mental Health on a number of platforms, including YouTube, Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, and more than 1,800 additional players. Every week, Gabe conducts casual, approachable conversations with notables, professionals, and celebrities regarding psychology and mental health.

His podcast has won the Wego Health Best Podcast Award and a Media Award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). Among the many notable visitors in the past have been Dr. Phil McGraw, Alanis Morissette, and Jennette McCurdy.


Mental Illness is an Asshole and Other Observations is written by Gabe. In addition, he has been featured in a wide range of print and online media, such as WebMD,, Bipolar Magazine, and the Stanford Online Medical Journal. He has appeared as a guest on multiple podcasts, such as The One You Feed, Mental Illness Happy Hour, and The Savvy Psychologist. 

Among his many awards, he is the recipient of Mental Health America’s Norman Guitry Award and received a resolution from the Governor of Ohio naming him an “Everyday Hero.”


Inspirational, funny, and able to instantly connect with audiences, Gabe is both entertaining and educational. In addition to his keynotes, he offers workshops with more formal training and breakout sessions to teach parents, educators, and corporations how to help those with mental health issues.
