The Hardcore Self Help Podcast with Duff the Psych

This is a podcast dedicated to answering your questions about mental health, anxiety, depression, relationships, sex, and life WITHOUT psychobabble BS. I am Dr. Robert Duff, a psychologist from Southern California, but I'm also a regular dude who legitimately wants to help out. I wrote the best selling books Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression and Hardcore Self Help: F**K Anxiety. Those are available at http://hardcoreselfhelp.com

Hello, friends! This episode is a nice Q&A with some great listener-submitted questions. The first one involves some discussion about suicide. Although nothing graphic, just be aware of that. Here are the two questions I cover this episode:

  • I have had thoughts of suicide for a long time, but have never made an attempt. How do I know when to take the thoughts seriously?
  • I am making mistakes at my new job and it's making me anxious and giving me insomnia. This is causing me to make more mistakes and I'm afraid I'm going to lose my job. How can I break this cycle?

As always, you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and full show notes are at duffthepsych.com/episode271

Hello, friends! In this episode, I answer a couple listener questions that are less about direct advice and more about general questions in the field of mental health and psychology. Here's what I cover:

  • Why are there so few mental health providers and why are waitlists so long?
  • Does it make sense to have multiple overlapping diagnoses?

As always, you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and full show notes are at duffthepsych.com/episode270

Hello, friends! In this episode, I have a Q&A featuring the following questions:

Hello, friends! On this episode, I had my wife back on the show. We just chilled on the couch and had a nice wide-ranging conversation about our lives right now, where our relationship is at, and even some of our pet peeves with each other. Enjoy!
