From her own personal experiences, Bezanson recently created a "Cards of Compassion" line that helps not only open the discussion between those affected by mental illness and their loved ones, but helps demonstrate support, love, and friendship or community, which is often what is needed most especially during the holiday season which can be quite a difficult time for some.
In addition to a show of support, proceeds from the sale of each card also goes towards local mental health organizations.
"There are nine cards in the series and while they offer support, the tone in many includes humour.
"Laughter is the best medicine," Bezanson said. "Scratch that. What your doctor prescribes for you is the best medicine, but laughter is the second best medicine.""
