Stand-up Comedy- Doug Stanhope 

In his way, he gets his audience to see that society fears, alienates, pushes away, and demonizes those with certain types of mental illnesses (what he calls "Camp 1: Mentally Disturbed"). What he refers to as Camp 2, or Mentally Challenged, are those with hold-with-kid-gloves mental retardation who are protected and accepted. ***WARNING: loads of curse words***

Podcast- DTFH with Emily V. Gordon
In the following Duncan Trussell Family Hour podcast/interview, Emily Gordon explains a few wonderful issues:
1) Depression is a parasite that attaches itself to you
2) To call around and ask for low-cost, sliding scale therapy
3) That it is possible to ask for certain therapists (e.g., gay-friendly, non-traditional life views, certified to help those with giftedness, etc.)
