Chato B. Stewart was a Florida board Certified Recovery Peer Specialist - A (CRPS-A). Chato is also the 1st place winner of the DBSA 2009 Facing Us Video Contest. In his powerful public service announcement, he tells his personal story of living with a mental illness through a montage of his cartoons. Adding to his little list of accomplishments is being part of the 2010 DBSA Stand-Up for Mental Health comedy night and being invited back for the 2011 Conference to be a Stand-Up comic in the show. In Dec 2011 I was named 4th in the Top 10 Online Influencers – Depression by ShareCare Now. This past Year WEGO Health named me the winner of 2012 Hilarious Health Activist. I was also in the cast for the 2013 DBSA Stand-Up for Mental Health comedy night.

Laughter is powerful pain killer, I love using of humor to help. I've drew one cartoon that made me laugh so hard, I can relate and I feel better. No subject is off limits! Death, suicide, depression, bipolar, OCD and SAD. These are real serious subjects from the view point of people living them. Not the typical "laying on couch" toon. Awesome! — Chato
