Why is my black dog different?

We are volunteers. Chat online for free about mental health to real people who have grappled with suicide, self harm, depression and paralysing mental illness. ​We understand that coping with mental illness is hard, and it is CONSTANT. It is not just when you are at a "crisis point" but also when you are in the early stages of this battle, weeks, months, maybe even years before that point.

Who's in?

We are not doctors or therapists, not counsellors or psychiatrists, we are people who understand; people who have ALL experienced mental health issues. When you use our online mental health helpline, we will be honest about our ourselves and hope that you feel comfortable chatting online to someone about your own mental health who has been through a similar experience. Find out more about the people who are MY BLACK DOG.

What are my other options?

You have options when it come to your mental health. Some days it might not feel that way but there ARE other options. You have us to talk to via our mental health online chat support or you have amazing mental health charities like Mind, The Samaritans and CALM if you are in real trouble. Or, if you want something weird and wonderful, we have ideas for that too!
