No matter the problem, small or big, you can be on Dr. Phil. But it’s not as easy as just having an email or mailing address to get your message to Dr. Phil himself. You have to follow the correct process.
Look for home page topics
Go to DrPhil.com and scour the homepage for upcoming show topics. Usually, there is a scrolling bar just below the website’s title banner that lists a few of the upcoming Dr. Phil show topics.
Most of the home page is usually in block or banner form with changing content. Most of the time, the blocks will contain more upcoming topics.
The topics across the homepage are broad and change often. When you find the topic that pertains to you, simply click on it and you’ll be taken to a page that tells you more about the topic and provides you with a submission form for you to fill out so you can tell the Dr. Phil show what you need help with.
But none of those topics apply to me
Don’t fret! There are many more topics to choose from!
Click on any of the topics on the home page which will take you to the submission form. Look on the left side of the screen (or in case they moved it, anywhere) for a tab that says “Be on the Show”. Click on it and you’ll be taken to a screen with topics separated into categories. Click on the category that pertains to you to see a list of topics within that category.
My topic still isn’t there
Then head to the bottom of any Dr.Phil.com page and click on “Contact Dr. Phil”. From there you will be taken to a list of contact options. You can either click on “Send a Letter” to get the address to send a letter via snail mail or you can click “Email the Show” or “Ask Dr. Phil” and fill out the submission form.
Why can’t I just have an email address?
Probably because of spam. With a website such as Dr. Phil.com, the show more than likely gets thousands of emails a week. No one wants to deal with spam on top of that.
When will someone contact me from the Dr. Phil show?
There’s no guarantee, even if you follow the right steps, that anyone will contact you at all. And if someone does contact you, it might take months for them to do so as they have to weed through thousands of emails.
But I need help right now!
If you need help right now, then you should contact the proper local sources. Don’t expect instant help when you write the Dr. Phil Show. If you need immediate help with a life threatening issue or need mental health info, here are the numbers and the website you need:
