Ask a Psychiatrist is a podcast where a real psychiatrist answers real questions about health, illness, recovery, and well-being.
The host of Ask a Psychiatrist is Dr. Erik Messamore, a board-certified psychiatric physician and PhD-level pharmacologist. He is a consultant psychiatrist, researcher, lecturer, teacher, and solution-focused scholar.
Dr. Messamore is joined on the podcast by Melissa Xenophontos, a journalist, radio producer and longtime mental health advocate.
Ask a Psychiatrist is driven by the philosophy that giving people accurate and complete information about the causes of illness and suffering – and the full range of tools for wellness and recovery – will help people ask the right questions of their therapists and doctors.
This kind of knowledge will make them better negotiators at getting the right kinds of care. They’ll get better results.
And they’ll drive the profession toward better practice.
