I have a black dog, his name is depression & Living with a black dog
Two short videos, created in collaboration with the World Health Organisation and writer and illustrator Matthew Johnstone, telling the story of overcoming the “black dog of depression”.
At its worst, depression can be a frightening, debilitating condition. Millions of people around the world live with depression. Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don’t know where to turn for help. However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognizing depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery.
“Living with a black dog” is a guide for partners, carers and sufferers of depression. It advises those living with and caring for people with depression on what to do, what not to do, and where to go for help.
