Lisa Chalkley - 2012 Mental Health HeroI’m using my recovery from personality disorders to change into an amalgamation of Miss Marple and Marilyn Monroe. I love laughter, friends and food, all at the same time. If I’m not writing comedy songs, painting or dancing around the kitchen in my pj’s, I’ll be tucked up with a thriller, my cats and a game of scrabble.

Always fighting for mental health services, awareness and training in the new ways we can use social media & the web to disseminate information and aid recovery. I love media and PR – even though they make me feel dirty.

Check out my blog, which is all about working with LifeSIGNS, raising awareness about self injury and using creativity. I’m also on twitter: @living_as_ifLisa Chalkley - 2012 Mental Health Hero by Chato Stewart and Mental Health Humor Project 455

Crystal D Choate grew up in Brea, CA, 10 miles from Disney Land (I LOVE Disneyland). She was always hitchhiking all over, or taking the bus, skipping school and getting bus transfers to places like San Diego and Big Bear.

In her words, she was,”wild…I tell ya! Wild!”

Crystal goes on to say, “I make myself laugh even when I don’t feel like it. It’s like an adrenaline rush. I focus on humour to lighten my life.

If you were marooned on an island, name three things you would take with you:

Dang…it’s always only 3 things! One ton of chocolate. Two tons of tea. And then an ax. I’m hoping I will have my glasses so I can start a fire, and I hope there is water, i hate fishy things to eat, but i would eat stuff out of the sea or rivers if I had to survive…yuckkitty..

What motivates you?

Lots of things motivate me. Light, hot, bright sunshine. My parents, children and friends. If I can help just one person, I have done a great job of being a good example. People laughing motivates me. Eating right so I don’t have pain motivates me!
