The My Black Dog Pack

Niki Clarke
Founder & CEO

Hi, I'm Niki! I started My Black Dog after years of battling with depression. I went through some VERY dark times, which are hard to describe or even talk about. I do however, think you should talk to someone, and someone who understands. I want you to know, you are NOT alone in how you feel - My Black Dog are here for you to talk to. I am so grateful for our incredibly brave team - all of them have been through really hard experiences, and they are here to share that with you.
