Black Dog Tribe
Added: 29th Feb 2012

Today sees the launch of Black Dog Tribe - an onlinesocialspace for people affected by mental illness, carers, family and friends. Black Dog Tribe encourages people to share their experience of mental illness and prevent the stigma surrounding the condition.

Thisinitiative is the work ofRuby Wax, andwas largely inspired by the reaction to her play 'Losing It' which gave a frank and witty account of her experience of mental illness.

Marjorie Wallace CBE said: “SANE, who launched a Black Dog campaign with statues across London, is working with Black Dog Tribe because we share its vision to include everyone who has experienced depression, anxiety or distress. People can be lonely and disconnected at times and need a ‘safe’ place to talk about their feelings with others who can understand. Ruby Wax’s initiative in establishing the Black Dog Tribe social network will bring comfort and company to thousands.”

SANE is delighted to support thiswonderful initiative. Please show your support by visiting theBlack Dog Tribe website: www.blackdogtribe.comand followingthem on Twitter and Facebook
