Mental health is a sorely overlooked part of life in American society. We are continuously bombarded with weapons of mass consumption designed to make us feel worthless without the next shiny new phone, and as soon as we feel depressed from this spiritual oppression, we are prescribed pills to make the feelings go away It's enough to drive a motherfucker batshit crazy!
I've had my own struggles with clinical depression and managed to manage my symptoms through a lot of therapy, a lot of weed, exercise, and creativity. It takes a lot of work, but I can't look down or judge people who don't find the same results without medication. My friend and fellow comic Jimmy Son sat down with me to discuss his experience with psychiatrists, staying on and going off his meds, and more!
