Titled “Let’s get you mentally healthy,” it provides some valuable information that comes from the 29-year-old’s personal life. “I have been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Depression,” Kate from Southern California told Bored Panda. “The comic half comes from exercises I learned in therapy and half from personal experience.”

“Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy have both been helpful in managing my mental health,” Kate added. “Eating well, exercising, creating, and working to have solid relationships have helped, too.”
Also, here at Bored Panda, we’ve covered other artists that tackle this difficult subject as well. Holly Chisholm has shared her take on living with depression and ADHD as well as georgedrawz who even managed to illustrate his everyday struggles with mental health in a mildly amusing way.
