National Suicide Prevention Lifeline “REASONS TO CALL” Photo Campaign

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Back in May, I had my Mental health Heroes cartoon-a-thon, and I filled my days with drawing some very amazing people/heroes! I had to put a few things on the “back-burners” for a while. This was one of the things I wanted to share, and it is something you can get in on, too. It’s the suicide prevention “Reasons to Call” photo campaign:

Whether you are thinking about suicide, are worried about a friend, or need emotional support, there are a million of reasons to call the Lifeline. We asked people to make a sign telling others why they should call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or why they have called themselves.

Message on Facebook. Write a note about why someone should call the hotline. I got to be a part of National Suicide Prevention Lifeline ’1-800-273-TALK (8255), and they posted my photo on their page.

What Group Has the Best Social Cues Skills – Need a Cue?

2012 Mental Health Humor - Home Cure - mcdermott Social Cues - Get a Pencil- by Chato Stewart 128“Social cue is a psychological term used to describe the non-verbal hints to guide conversation.” 

This is now one of my favorite cartoons I’ve drawn! Yes, it’s a “Jeux de mots” (French for “play on words”). I wish I could see your reaction, so I can gauge your social cues on how you like the cartoon. If it’s a puzzled facial reaction, then your social cue would tell me you don’t get the joke. Rolling your eyes would indicate to me you think the gag is too simplistic. If that is the case, you may want to read over my last post (Superiority Theory).

There are a few play-on-words within the cartoon, including references to pool and billiard cues. Players and Mcdermott are two of the best pool cues manufactured, so is Cuetec. People who play pool might pick up on this joke.
