Black Dog statue

Disability Services purchased a Black Dog statue from the charity SANE, for adoption by the University of Dundee community. SANE aims to improve the quality of life for anyone affected by mental illness. The Black Dog campaign aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness and encourages people to seek help early.
