I had a black dog, his name was depression
Depression can affect each or any of us. It can come out of the blue or it can grow and grow. It need not be faced alone. Watch the wonderful movie created by the WHO.
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.
If you are experiencing depression, please talk to your family and friends, try not to bottle it up or tackle it alone. If you would like support and to find new ways of managing and treating your depression, please contact me on 086 8345876 or you can email me here.
A point to note is that dogs, regardless of colour, are in fact excellent companions for tackling depression too 🙂
