Dr. Phil McGraw, perhaps the most well-known mental health professional in the world, is the host of the leader in daytime talk, Dr. Phil. Launched in 2002, Dr. Phil provides the most comprehensive forum on mental health issues in the history of television. For 12 years, Dr. McGraw has used the Dr. Phil platform to make psychology accessible and understandable to the general public by addressing important personal and social issues. Using his top-rated show as a teaching tool, he takes aim at the critical issues of our time, including the “silent epidemics” of bullying, drug abuse, domestic violence, depression, child abuse, suicide and various forms of severe mental illness.
When it comes to critical social causes, Dr. Phil is committed to making to making a lasting impact. He has testified before Congress on three high-profile occasions, the first on June 14, 2010, before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Healthy Families and Communities in an effort to stop student cyberbullying. Next, on July 13, 2011, McGraw testified to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, which supports community-based organizations that are engaged in work to end domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking of women. The law was reauthorized by Congress in 2013.
