From well known actress to mental health advocate to game show host. Pictured here, Mayim Bialik during her weekly podcast, Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown.
Mayim Bialik seeks to dispel myths and misunderstandings about mental health. While Dr. Bialik holds a PhD in Neuroscience, she is not a medical doctor and can not diagnose, provide treatment, or make suggestions which prevent disease.

From 1991 to 1995, Mayim Bialik played the title character of the NBC sitcom Blossom. From 2010 to 2019, she played neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. For the latter role, Bialik was nominated four times for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and won the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2015 and 2017.
In August 2021, it was announced that Bialik will host the primetime version of Jeopardy!. After Mike Richards stepped down from hosting the syndicated version of the show later that month, Bialik started concurrently hosting that version as well (sharing duties with Ken Jennings).
Mayim remains dedicated to the weekly podcast, which has featured guests such as: Jaleel White, Salmon Khan, Alison Desire, Lamorne Morris, Jackson Galaxy, Anthony Green, Jalen Rose, Alan Gordon, David Archuleta, Matthew McConaughey, Rainn Wilson, Timber Hawkeye, Kevin Sussman, Bobby Moynihan, Dan Matthews, Wil Wheaton, and Kunal Nayyar.
