Top 5 Favorite 2014 The Family Stew Cartoons
Here are Mental Health Humor’s top 5 “The Family Stew” cartoons. The Family Stew Cartoon series is drawn by me and about me Chato Stewart and about me. Yes, I may be best known for my Mental Health Humor cartoons, but this series grew out of it. It is the balanced of a blend of mental illness advocacy and my psychological disorders mixed with of course “family” issues. Yes, I am  a father, husband, and consumer and I draw from my own funny outlook on life…well at least, I think it’s funny.

You can see just how much my drawing style has changed in 12 months with drawing this cartoon series The Family Stew. The bottom cartoon was drawn in January 20014.

Suicide: Treatment for Suicidal Thoughts

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

Chato Stewart: “I MEANT Business Plan!”Mental Health Tech: T-shirt [psych ward] (door Psychiatrist Office)Caption: NOTE to self: Listen to the whole question before I answer (my therapist).When you tell your doctor you have a plan, make sure he knows it not a suicide plan! Suicide Holiday|Suicide Ideation|Suicidal thoughts |Suicide GenesIf you need to talk to someone now, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and you’ll be connected with a trained counselor. They can also connect you to mental health services in your area.  The line is available 24/7 and is for people in crisis and those who support people in crisis.(Chato Says: One thing I believe most of us peers fear is going back into full-time treatment/hospital/relapse…So I understand when the peer below says “without risking the hospital.”  He’s talking about not saying the wrong thing to this doctor/therapist that would trigger a quick visit to the Psych Ward (as in the above cartoon).  By-the-way: BTW:  this  Mental Health Humor Cartoon was drawn in 2008, not long after I  got out of the hospital. It was art imitates life with my then Med Manager (who was always pressing me about my  thoughts of suicide/suicidal ideation.)

Whether or not suicide is more common during the Christmas holiday is Fact or Myth…one thing WE
ALL MUST NOT LOSE FOCUS ON the FACTS
– In the U.S, the CDC reports suicide mortality every 12.9
minutes. If you need to talk to someone now, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and you’ll be connected with a trained counselor. They can also connect you to
mental health services in your area. The line is available 24/7 and is for people in crisis and
those who support people in crisis.

What is One Sure Thing Celebrating The Holidays Will Do?
The holiday(s) stress(es) can be overwhelming, depressing and out right lonely…Buying gifts, dealing with long lines, and some not-so-joyful souls can really get you down.  Having to be with family or not having family to be with, for others, can be a trigger.
