Laughter might not be the best medicine, but it is helping people to heal and recover from mental disorders through Stand Up For Mental Health, founded by comedian and counselor David Granirer.
In David’s Stand Up For Mental Health course, mental health consumers turn their problems into stand up comedy, then perform their acts at conferences, treatment centers, psych wards, for various mental health organizations, corporations, government agencies, on college and university campuses, and most importantly for the general public.
Big Daddy Tazz recently appeared at a Stand Up for Mental Health benefit here in Illinois. He’s a Bipolar dad raising a son with ADHD. He’s a crazy funny good parent. Enjoy this clip; I did!
