Introducing Quick Fix: Mental Health CartoonsWe love humor, and we especially enjoy cartoon humor that highlights the foibles of everyday life in a clever way.

Single panel cartoons have long been a way of sharing such humorous insights. The brevity of the format requires a quick wit and a keen talent.

That’s why I’m both pleased and honored to welcome Donna Barstow, one of the top cartoonists in the country, to Psych Central. She’ll be blogging her unique insights into human behavior, psychology, relationships and mental health over on her new blog, Quick Fix.

Donna has had her cartoons published in dozens of places, including notable publications such as The New Yorker, Parade Magazine (the biggest magazine in the country), Reader’s Digest, Wall Street Journal, Glamour, Barron’s etc. She also has been featured in Slate and Yahoo! News for 2 years. Donna’s remarable editorial cartoons have also been published in Newsweek, USA Today, Christian Science Monitor, and elsewhere.

But she hasn’t been just limited to magazines, newspapers, and online:

I’ve had work reprinted in many books, including Chicken Soup books, but I’m most happy about my own two books, still in print; both of which I edited. I was also editor and cartoonist of a popular Barnes & Noble page a day calendar.

Wow, what an amazing body of work, and one which always brings a smile to my face.

It’s a pleasure to welcome Donna to Psych Central, so I hope you can give her a warm Psych Central welcome over on her blog, Quick Fix: Mental Health Cartoons, now!
