You can't win, it's not how you play the game, it's that you never read the rules!
- By Chato B. Stewart
Mental Health Advocate - Cartoonist - and a few other things!
First, I would like to take a moment and THANK the DBSA for inviting me to participate in Prof. Higginbotham's presentation! I also need to say a SPECIAL THANK YOU to my sponsors: Enzymedica, Roxanne and The Fort Myers DBSA, Mark Pines of Orange County Counseling, Tracey Skale and Lori Olson of EeeSquare.com! I also want to THANK "everyone" who continues to support the Mental Health Humor Project by visiting the website and consistently sharing humor to help others!
Yes, I will be participating in a presentation with the Social media expert, Dale Higginbotham, (Academic Advisor and Lecturer in communications and media studies, University of Houston). Dale Higginbotham and video contest winner, Chato Stewart, will share how you can put the "you" in YouTube, by using your personal story to educate and inspire others. The presentation "Sharing Your Story Through Social Media" will be SATURDAY, MAY 21, 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

I'm also happy to "officially" announce my participation in this year's DBSA STAND-UP COMEDY WITH DAVID GRANIRER (SATURDAY, MAY 21, 7:30 pm. – 9:00 p.m.) David Granirer is a stand-up comic and founder of Stand Up for Mental Health. A consumer who lives with Depression, he is also a counselor, speaker, and author. All participants take his customized correspondent stand-up class via conference calls, e-mail, and Skype. This way when all us Newbies get up on stage, we won't bomb too badly!
Are you going to the DBSA conference? Don't miss the presentation in the comedy show! Make sure you let me know you'll be there, maybe we can meet up for a cup of coffee.
