Say Hello To ‘Michael Scotti Jr’ Creator of the #doubtfireface

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

In my last few posts, you got to see My #doubtfireface Suicide Prevention Challenge.  Also, my research on American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the #doubtfireface challenge this led me to Michael Scotti, Jr. creator of the viral video: Say “Helloooo” to #suicideprevention!

I reached out to him via e-mail and he I asked if I could ask him a few questions for my Mental Health Humor blog.

Chato Stewart: I’m a blogger and mental health advocate that uses humor as a tool to teach, comfort and help heal my-self and my peers. The loss of Robin Williams…huge! Michael – great thinking with the say “Hello” To Suicide Prevention #doubtfireface challenge!  I would love to ask You a few questions to be published on my Psych Central blog with my video. I was at a restaurant with my wife and 4 kids and grabbed one of my girl’s dessert and did a “Doubtfire.”

Michael Scotti JrMichael Scotti Jr.:  Thanks so much for reaching out and for your Doubtfireface support. I agree. The loss of Robin Williams is a tragedy. He was not only an icon of comedy, but also served as one my biggest inspirations to have a sense of humor always and to follow my dreams of becoming a filmmaker.

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

A while back, well it’s been almost a year, I was at the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) 2013 Conference Miami. The theme was “Stronger Together”.  As the Mental Health Humor cartoonist at the conference, I got to share many of my cartoons…AND take part in my third Stand-Up for Mental Health comedy show.  The video of the the show was lost due to technical issues.  The videographer audio was not working right. So all you have is a clean video with an annoying humming buzz sound, much like my voice.

Fortunately one of my fellow BP HOPE Bloggers Melody Moezzi was there:
