As Depression became one of the focus topics of the World Mental Health Day in 2017, World Health Organization (WHO) released short videos about the “black dog of depression” telling the story of writer and illustrator Matthew Johnstone’s depression and how he overcame it. It was produced in collaboration with the World Health Organization to mark World Mental Health Day 2012 and was released now in the framework of the WHO’s “Depression: let’s talk” campaign.
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. (WHO:http://www.who.int/campaigns/world-health-day/2017/videos/en/ )
