I am so PSYCHED to be at Psych Central! But with all networks, there is a transition period. To some “Chato B. Stewart” and the “Mental Health Humor” cartoons are new.
The first knee jerk reaction is who in the hell would make fun of people with mental illness!!! What a Jerk!!! I agree 100%!!!
Fortunately, that is not what I’m all about. My goal is to use humor as a health coping mechanism. I truly believe humor is the best medicine. Yet, we all have varying taste when it comes to our own sense of humor. That is why I have my “Warning” above.
My mission is NOT to laugh at my peers but rather with them. Here is a good example of BAD mental health health humor written by my Blog Buddie, Alicia Sparks, on her Psych Central blog, Celebrity Psyching. While Reviewing the movie, Observe And Report, she asks the question, “Does The Mental Health Humor Cross A Line?”
