Best Mental Health and Wellness Podcasts for Kids, Tweens, and Teens

This list of podcasts serves as a toolkit to help kids, tweens, and teens with their physical, mental, and emotional health and wellness. These shows offer both preventative and therapeutic approaches. Some guide listeners through physical movement like yoga, stretching, and dance. And others focus on mindfulness techniques to calm the mind and soothe the nervous system, including meditation, breathing, and visualization. Younger listeners and their parents and caregivers will find shows that help them name emotions, express how they feel, and communicate these feelings to peers and trusted adults. Tweens and teens will find resources to help them understand the changes their bodies are going through in adolescence, how puberty can affect their emotions, how to navigate and alleviate stress, mental health challenges, and more.

This insightful curation takes a holistic approach when it comes to our kids' well-being, no matter what age. These shows aim to help kids and families build positive habits for physical and emotional health, and they offer accessible tools to use in challenging moments. That said, while many of these podcasts can be helpful resources, they aren't a replacement for professional mental health evaluation or treatment.
