Tame the Black Dog – WHO Film for World Mental Health Day 2012

It’s World Mental Health Day today and the focus this year is on depression.

The World Health Organization have produced an animated video about the condition, written, illustrated and narrated by Matthew Johnstone.

This compact yet comprehensive little film features a black dog, an age old metaphor for depression. According to the WHO, more than 350 million people worldwide are affected, of all ages and from diverse backgrounds.
