Top 10 Mental Health Humor Cartoon Posts of 2013 (Part1)

2013 Mental Health Humor top 10 by Chato Stewart Cartoon copy

This 3 part Top 10 Mental Health Humor Cartoon Post of 2013 is based on the last 12 months of Google Analytics for 2013 blog posts only. Instead of just listing the 10 most popular posts, I thought I would have a bit of fun and let you into some of the thoughts and reasons I drew the cartoons. I might tell you about something you might of missed or looked at in a different way, or maybe you will get the joke, or realize it’s not funny… whatever the case you will read Chato’s Notes.

Here are Four of  the TOP 10 Mental Health Humor Cartoon blog posts for 2013:


csi, evergrees,tree cartoon,mental health humor,

Chato’s  Notes:
I was surprised to see this post make the top, being that I only posted it last week.  But I know it did have a spike…  Maybe with tree lovers or people that watch CSI.  True story – I was with my kids the day I posted this cartoon getting soup at a heath food store.  My youngest showed the cartoon to one of the employees.  He did not have his glasses on and said “oh wha-ch look at that, how cute,” he was praising her about the cartoon “It’s lovely,” my 8 year old said my daddy drew it, then he pulled out his glasses, put them on and he said…”Ax murder, that’s NOT CUTE AT ALL!”…. 


2013 Mental Health Humor - The Impact Of Mental Illness - Chato Stewart cartoon DSM5 book Impact

Chato’s  Notes:
In May the new DSM5 came out…from all that I was reading on Psych Central, APA, the Moniter, Psych Today, blogs and newspapers on all the hype…That was how I felt the impact was going be.  For me personally, I have not felt much of a ripple now six months later. I’m not sure where the biggest effect is happening… I think right know everyone is more worried about having health care then having a name for what they have.


t2013 The Family Stew_Mental Health Humor_Ridiculous Bipolar Treatments by Chato Stewart cartoon

Chato’s  Notes:
This cartoon is one of my favorite cartoons from BLOG PARTY for National Health Blog Post Month #NHBPM.  It was the 2nd annual event hosted at WeGoHealth. I was happy to focus on The Family Stew Cartoon Series for a full month.  In the cartoon, I had to draw about ridiculous bipolar treatments.  I focused on the ear lobe not just due to the fad of Lobe stretching. But rather, when I was a kid my father (who was bipolar undiagnosed) read in the National Enquirer about Special Ear Lobe pressure Points used in ancient Asian therapy to control moods. The device they sold was a clamp that looked like a big clothes pin for hanging up your laundry. My father was too cheap to buy the National Enquirer $19.99 special mood pins.  He made me  wear regular clothes pins on my ears for hours at a time…the weird thing, besides pinching the ear, I think it worked!  



t2013 Mental Health Humor - Stress Is Ripping Me Apart Chato Stewart - bridge damage stress management
Chato’s  Notes:
Fact – I was watching the news and they said something about the “bridge stress was a factor”  I think a part of a bridge cracked and needed to be repaired.  Here in Florida, there are a LOT of bridges over large bay areas and tons on canal.  The Idea that a bridge was suffering from stress… Had me thinking…WHAT that looks like?  And would he/the bridge admit to it?

Chato Stewart’s Top 10 Notes:

The top ten Mental Health Humor Cartoons are calculated based on blog posts views and not by the cartoons.  If this  was the top ten fav cartoons, it would be flawed. Since there is no way to gauge the cartoons…they are on so many different platforms after posted on the blog, such as twitter, Facebook, Pintrest and such.  At this point, I can only go by page views for blog post for 2013.  I did not include posts from other years or tag or category.
