The Mental Health Humor blog is not intended to stigmatize! While viewing the content of the blog, understand it is meant to be positive! Yet, we cannot please every one. If you find humor about mental illness offensive, then please do not view the blog.
First, I would like to thank John Grohol, Psy.D. for being brave enough to bring me here to Psych Central! I’ve always known my Mental Health Humor cartoons belonged here and now I think I’ve found a real home!
It reminds me of a quote from one of my favorite movies, Mars Attacks. Just before meeting the Martian Ambassador, General Casey said:
” …if I just stayed in place and never spoke up, good things are bound to happen. “
Yes, words that I like to live by… For Sure!
Yes it’s me, Chato B. Stewart, the Mental Health Humor cartoonist, here now at Psych Central and ready to laugh like there’s no tomorrow!
You may not know the name but you might have seen the cartoons. Many bloggers have freely used (with proper credit and back links) my cartoons. They have been in tons of Mental Health organizations’ newsletters and print in a few newspapers and magazines.
The cartoons I draw, at times, reflect my day-to-day family life as a person living with a psychological disorder. (Including my own skewed view of reality!) For example, this cartoon from the 2009 Cartoon-A-Thon about stress management:
Over the next few weeks, I will be uploading many of my cartoons for you to see and use for your own projects, newsletters and blog posts. All I ask is if you like any cartoon and wish to use it, please link to my NEW blog (https://blogs.psychcentral.com/humor) with the anchor text (Mental Health Humor).
My only rule is, if you are going to get paid in any way, that I get some type of compensation. Fair enough, right?!
The video below I will add to my about page, so if you don’t have time now, you can check me out later.

Words Of The Wisdomless: Balance:
“If you’re seeking balance because your life is a mess, then you’re looking for the wrong thing. What you need to be seeking… is a broom!”
