Author Brett Newski: It’s Hard To Be A Person
Using humor to shed light on mental health struggles, alternative songwriter/illustrator/podcaster Brett Newski pokes fun at his own depression by offering mental health boosts in his first book “It’s Hard to be a Person: defeating anxiety, surviving the world, and having more fun.”
The idea for the book began with some doodles Newski posted online to make light of his own struggles with anxiety and depression. To his surprise, they garnered an overwhelming response and he decided to make his related coping mechanism of drawings into a series. His new book presents three years’ worth of drawings.
He joined us for a live interview to discuss the book and how to make your anxiety useful.
