A new social network for people with depression has been launched today by Ruby Wax.

Black Dog Tribe will allow people to link up with others who have the illness and users will be able to flag up any particularly worrying comments.

Wax, who has spoken about her battle with depression, said that there is plenty of information on the site as well.

"We have a lot of videos of experts," she said. "So we can route you to people who are the A-list of people who can explain it to you, because nobody explains what is mental illness - have you got the blues, or all you ill."
