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.”
