Black Dog – Depression

Black Dog – Depression

A video about depression that my therapist told me about. It’s very good and helps visualise a world where depression can be tamed. 

All the best, 



About davidmbeecroft

Hello and welcome to my blog. Please feel free to have an explore. My name is David Beecroft. I am 38 years old. I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued in 1998. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have sent my first novel off to agents and considering self-publishing if that does not work. I co-host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Daves of the Week where we feature charities for a six week period. I live with my fiance and two pet Degus. I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of this blog was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. I also like to look at the happier sides of life and try to put a positive spin on serious subjects.

  1. I like the Ad about black dog depression, I used to watch it on tv, it’s so true as often we hide our conditions for fear of being judged. Since knowing Jesus I’m not as afraid, depression can affect us all. I was sadden by Robin Williams, he didn’t die of suicide. He died of depression… I was lucky.


    • If I have helped you in any way, then my day was worth a damn. I am so happy you are feeling better. Keep your chin up. It will get better and it will get easier. I am going to say this is the nicest way. You didn’t get lucky. You made a decision to deal with your depression in a way that worked for you. You did that. Not luck. You. I think you should give yourself as much credit for that as you feel comfortable with. You have earnt it. I am here for you if you ever need a chat or an ear to listen to you.

      All the bets,
