Description

At My Depression's Got Jokes, Joi Donaldson & Montrell White are two black millennials doing the work of disarming the ashiness of mental illness through humor. They explore what makes us laugh when our brains go sad and what it looks like for people of color to overcome with mental illness. We can be dope with depression. Amazing with anxiety. Bomb with bipolar disorder. Our mental illnesses do not define us.
