Dr. Paula Bloom


Dr. Bloom, is a practicing clinical psychologist, speaker, and frequent contributor to CNN. Through her training and work on suicide hotlines, community mental health centers, and medical and psychiatric units, Dr. Bloom quickly realized that she knew far more about mental illness than mental health. Her focus has now shifted to helping individuals struggling with psychiatric conditions such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder to go beyond their diagnosis and find a greater sense of productivity, purpose, and meaning in their lives. Dr. Bloom believes that all of us have a limited amount of mental health “capital,” and often very little emotional “overdraft” protection. She challenges us to consider which thoughts and behaviors we can afford, and to abandon those old patterns that drain us.

Dr. Bloom earned her master’s and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology from Nova Southeastern University and lives in Atlanta with her husband and children.
