About Highly Therapized

Highly Therapized is a mental health podcast, resource center, and community curated for mental health providers.

ther·a·pize subject to psychological therapy.

“Therapized” or “Therapizing,” a term often used by family, friends, and sometimes strangers towards mental health professionals. A profession so essential, yet lacking the needed support for the providers that make it indispensable. This is the stance that laid the foundation for Highly Therapized.

The Highly Therapized podcast is about holding space to discuss the nuances and everyday life of a mental health professional. This includes discussion surrounding the state of mental health; mental health professionals; community mental health versus private practice; personal experiences; mental health news; and generational differences within the profession. Podcast episodes include interviews of mental health and related-field professionals.
