Al Levin | Mental Health Advocate, Podcaster, Blogger, Coach, and Public Speaker


On this website, you’ll find my BLOG POSTS and my PODCAST, The Depression Files. You can also read about “MY STORY” of two bouts of major depression. In addition, you’ll be able to book me for COACHING or PUBLIC SPEAKING events.

About My Blog: Mental Health

Here, you’ll find topics for which I am incredibly passionate:

  • Men and Depression
  • Suicide Prevention & Awareness
  • Stigma Around Mental Illness (and, particularly depression)
  • Our Current, Broken Mental Health System

The goal of my blog is to bring awareness to the general public around these topics.  I hope that through this awareness I can help to bring a better understanding of depression (particularly with men), perhaps save even just one life, diminish the stigma around mental health even in some minute way, and somehow positively impact a mental health system that seems often times to be of little or no support to the most vulnerable people who need it. Check out the Blog Posts now!

If you find value in my podcast/blog, please consider buying me a cup of coffee at There, you can buy me a one-timeĀ  cup (or cups) of coffee or become a member to purchase coffee for me monthly. Not only will this help to caffeinate me up, but it will also help to offset the cost of the podcast & blog hosting site, maintain and update my equipment and support the amount of time that it takes in order to produce the show/write the blog.
