Black Dog Days

These wonderful illustrations by Matthew Johnstone capture and bring to life some of the many different moods, emotions and experiences that so often accompany depression - a condition that also underscores most forms of mental ill-health. When we see these behaviours in friends, family and colleagues we need to acknowledge and respond sensitely to the distress that the person is going through.

All of us can have a 'Black Dog Day' without necessarily having a clinical mental health problem, but whether our condition is serious or temporary a single text can lift the spirits and lighten the turmoil that confronts us.
