"It is never what you do that makes people remember you, it's who you do it to that makes it for ever. It can come back to bite you and knock you down or build you up and put you in the clouds. Be the builder not the wrecking ball."
As a Mental Health Advocate each year for I try and make an extra effort to bring awareness to Mental Health during the month of May. This will be the 3rd year that I will do the Cartoon-A-Thon. This is when I draw 31 cartoons about mental health and post them on the site http://mentalhealthcartoons.com
Last year we had a record number of visitors with over 22,823 unique visits just in May 2009. Over the past year the site has attracted 115,161 peers, providers and caregivers from around the world.
It bring me so much joy that their are so many that like the cartoon enough to keep coming back and even using them in newsletter, book, magazines, blogs and websites.
As an amateur Cartoonist and peer living with Bipolar Disorder doing the Mental Health Humor Cartoons has been my own art therapy and a labor of love.
Over that past year I've been teaching myself to draw caricatures. This year for the Cartoon-A-Thon we are going to draw 31 caricatures of sponsor and people working hard in the mental health community far and wide.
If you want to be part of the cartoon-A-Thon now to reserve your day of the month.
