INTERNATIONAL SANE MENTAL HEALTH CARE has provided a unique, innovative approach to mood disorders and makes a strong impact to the anti-stigma campaign - it is geared especially for depression. See online, direct services, including crisis calling, in UK and Australia, however significant aspects of their program are available online/globally. In particular - see their conceptualization of Depression as a Great Black Dog which can be trained and managed (join the Great Black Dog Tribe), and utilize the educative tools, such as cartoons, which are invaluable toward a non-stigmatizing and progressive, cognitive behavioral approach to living with mood disorder and accepting support. Some of their very effective projects are: The Black Dog Campaign Thought for the Day Virtual Dog Message of Hope
Black Dog Story: One in four people experiences a mental health problem; many more are touched by its consequences.
Mental illness and mental health is complex; people can face difficulties such as stigma, exclusion and isolation, as well as trying to cope with a very debilitating experience. Recovery or management is not always a straightforward process.
