I Had A Black Dog by Matthew Johnstone

I got this book as (an incredibly thoughtful) Christmas present from my friend Jen. It's essentially a picture book about depression, and it's beautiful. In one sentence per page it says more than your average self-help book (and a lot more than your average NHS leaflet!)

In places I literally wept with recognition, yet I still managed to finish the book with a smile on my face.

If you, or someone you love, has been affected by depression, then I cannot recommend this book enough.


I'd love to hear what you think...
