“I had a black dog, his name was depression”: A Powerful Visual of One Man’s Experience Living with Depression

1 Comment

One of our goals for this blog is to post new content every Monday. Unfortunately, this week has been particularly hectic and, as such, we didn’t have time to prepare an original post. Given the circumstances, we thought we would use this as an opportunity to instead share a video that we love! We’ve shared this video on our Facebook and Twitter pages before, but we wanted to share it again here because we feel the message of the video is so profound, it deserves sharing again.

This short video depicts Matthew Johnstone’s experience of living with depression. The use of metaphor to describe his experience with depression, “a black dog”, creates a striking image of what it is like for many people who live with this mental health issue. We hope you will find this video to be not only informative, but also inspiring.

  1. WOW! I agree that this is a profound visual to depict depression and could assist anyone who may not even realize that they are in a state of some form of depression. I hope that this video is reaching our communities.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Deborah =)
