I’m OK but you need professional help – Creating recovery one laugh at a time
“We use comedy to give mental health consumers a powerful voice and help reduce the stigma and discrimination around mental illness.
“The idea is that laughing at our setbacks raises us above them. It makes people go from despair to hope, and hope is crucial to anyone struggling with adversity. Studies prove that hopeful people are more resilient and also tend to live longer, healthier lives.”~David Granirer, counselor, stand-up comic, author
