Who is Chato?
I am not Bipolar Disorder, I am not Depression, I am a mental Illness, that is NOT who I am! I am a husband, father and a person in recovery and a mental health advocate.
I’m also the cartoonist behind the Mental Health Humor cartoons. For the last few years now I’ve drawn positive, provoking, and some times even funny cartoons about living with mental disorders. The difference is they are from my vantage point. Living with a “psychological” gives us a unique point of view.
I’ve known all my life the power behind humor, it can give help, hope and healing. My goal and mission has also been to tap into humor and use it as a positive tool to cope with the serious and debilitating effects of mental illness.
I am Chato B. Stewart, laugh with me and share your humor.
