Recognize that chick to the right?

Probably not, unless you know me personally (or follow me on Twitter or Facebook), because I don’t think I’ve ever posted a picture of myself here at Celebrity Psychings, but…that’s me!

Of course, the name might’ve tipped you off :)

Anyway, as part of his annual Mental Health Awareness Month Cartoon-A-Thon (this is his first year at Psych Central, where he blogs Mental Health Humor) my good friend and the very talented cartoonist Chato B. Stewart has dubbed me and a slew of other folks in the mental health field as Mental Health Heroes.

You can check out the whole bunch at his May 11-17 Cartoon-A-Thon post.

He’s darn good, yes?

I met Chato several years ago when I was writing Mental Health Notes for the b5media Network. I ran a series called “This Is Why I ROCK!”, featuring, obviously, mental health rock stars, and was thrilled to feature Chato and his work. Blending mental health and humor is an intricate dance, and once I believe Chato performs flawlessly (and hysterically!). Naturally, I was ecstatic when he joined the Psych Central team this year!

You can learn more about Chato, his mental health story, and his cartoons when you visit is Psych Central About Page, and don’t forget to head over and get familiar with Mental Health Humor!
