Music, black dogs and better mental health


Three things I’ve noticed:

1. Ruby Wax has launched Black Dog Tribe, a new site for people with depression – it’s currently in beta and focuses on ways people can support each other. It features lots of interaction and multimedia stuff.

2. Social Spider and the Mental Health Providers Forum have produced a report, Better Mental Health in a Bigger Society which looks at how the NHS and local authorities can help individuals and communities take forward their own vision of wellbeing.

3. Lifehacker has a piece on how music can help you be more productive and boost your immune system, as well as helping people with dementia recall memories.
