BLACK dogs bark the loudest of all.

We all know someone - a friend, work colleague or family member - who suffers or has experienced some form of depression.

As someone who has had the black dog on her shoulder, I can tell you it can be a real challenge to see the joy through the darkness.

People suffering from depression often seem as though nothing's wrong. They don't want to show their vulnerability or have their boss think they aren't up to the job.

So today being RUOK Day?, I challenge you to ask the question of your family, friends, workmates and peers. Just a gentle "How are you going?" in a quiet moment by the coffee machine, at the post box or in the supermarket could be the start of someone putting the sunshine back into their life.
