Ah, we know what you’re thinking: what do psychiatry and humor have to do with one other? Psychiatry is about mental illness, and there’s no room for laughter amidst such pain.
Here’s the quick answer: humor therapy.
Here’s the complicated answer: the picture below explains it best.
In psychiatry, humor is therapy, intervention, coping skill, self-soothing strategy, a sign of immaturity (if your provider doesn’t like your jokes), a sign of maturity (if not taken to an excess), and an endorphin-raising physiological experience that mimics exercise if done often and long enough. Some say it’s good for weight loss, though studies suggest physical exercise is still best.
