Who am I?

 

The best way I can do this is by showing you "My Recovery Story". This is the 1st place 2009 DBSA "Facing Us" Video Contest. I use my cartoons to help tell my story.

Welcome to the annual Mental Health Humor Project's Cartoon-A-Thon fund raiser. This is a grass roots project to promote a simple idea. To use humor as a healthy coping skill toward recovery. 

Since I'm not paid nor charge for doing the project, I have to rely on the finical gifts of others.  Two years ago, I started doing my Cartoon-A-thon for mental health awareness month.  Last year was the first year we tried to raise money with it.  We had $398.00 donated.  That money went to developing that workshop along with paying for part of the web site.  My Cartoon-A-Thon site had over 100,000 unique visits last year. My Mental Health humor blog had over 300,000...People connect with the humor, it's honest, not degrading but on point and sometimes funny. The idea is to get people thinking about mental health and open lines of communication about serious and sometimes difficult topics.

Not to mention, even helping to established a new DBSA chapter here in Port Charlotte.


I would like to ask to help me in share this positive, yet some times funny message about Mental Health. I know the cartoons has helped my fellow peers. This is such a unique way to do reach people and has open so many door world wide.
